Been gradually extending my regular distances using a run: walk pattern of 4:2 and hit that magic 5 miles today!
Although I thought I would aim for a longer run this morning, it was so hot that I decided that I would call it a day at about 6k - but somehow or other just kept plodding on and decided to do one more lap around the village bringing it up to 8.2k. Mind you, I'm only averaging about 8 mins per km so no records in danger!
I'm beginning to believe that I will gradually work up to 10k.
My first running anniversary is coming up at the beginning of July. Don't think that I will be running 10k by then, but I will have run more than 500k in total since I started recording my runs in week 6.
This programme is amazing - and, this morning, I think I'm pretty amazing too!
