My first non-stop 6K

Although I have run up to 15Klms using run/walk, I have never exceeded 5Klms non-stop. So today, in my challenge to run 10K non-stop, I did my first easy, conversational pace 6K. -- and it was easy. I hardly raised my breath - although it was a slow pace of 8mins 30 seconds per K ( even slower than my run/walk long training runs) but I finished strongly and could have done more , so I am positive that I will be able to do out to 10klms over the next 7 weeks.

  • good for you. I'm glad you are making good progress

  • Excellent work Bazza, you will have no problem with the 10k non stop. I find if I walk I just can't get a rhythm back and it sounds like you got I to a good rhythm and decent pace too. Well done.

  • Well done Bazza, running isn't about taking off like usain bolt I find running is about lasting the distance.....it's about deciding to do something and then finishing it no matter how long it takes....I personally never stop at all, if I'm feeling like I have to stop I go into grandma jog mode (which is literally just a little faster than walking) recover and then go back to normal speed....but congratulations and good luck with the 10k

  • Well done Bazza, I'm trying to talk myself into running this morning as I planned. Might have had a glass of vino or six too many last night, slept really badly, it's already quite hot here...8.30 is a bit more than I can keep up at the moment...

  • Great stuff, Bazza :)

  • You're doing so well!
