I think I have found what I have been looking for!!!! -and that is, an answer to the age old C25K graduate question -- "What do I do now" ??
I do NEED a structured running programme to follow - something that I just do 3 times per week without having to do too much thinking about it - and something that forces me to incorporate running into my daily life (like diet) and stops me from falling off the wagon!
I think I am going to limit my running to around the 10K mark - so that elimates any thoughts of going on to do half and full marathon training programmes . There are LOTS of programmes out there to run 10K - but they are mostly only around 10 weeks or so, and I can already run 10K anyway. I need something to follow for MUCH longer.
So I have found this home.sprynet.com/~holtrun/5... -- it is essentially a 10 week programme to get a beginner to 5K - this leads to another 10 week programme to get to 10K home.sprynet.com/~holtrun/j... - which leads into another 20 week programme for 30miles(50K) per week runners home.sprynet.com/~holtrun/1... which then leads to another 20 weeks to 10K for 40-60 miles per week runners home.sprynet.com/~holtrun/1... All with a view towards only 5K and 10K running.
So after I finish my 14K funrun , I will be having a rest (on a cruiseship for 2 weeks) and then I am starting at the very beginning again ( walk 5K in under an hour! :)) and have a 60 week plan ahead of me. Now, that's sorted -- I'm off ( when the sun comes up and it warms up a bit) for my final 15K run/walk interval training run before heading to Sydney in 10 days time.
