Couch to 5K

Gentle Jog for My Asics

Following myasics plan a gentle 3mile jog at 13:46 mins per mile. Wearing my new shoes. I can't go that slow. Ended up with 5k in 34 mins which is 11:03 mins per mile. Fastest pace tonight - crossing the road and a car came fast round the bend. Looking forward to 4.5 miles fast tomorrow night.Hopefully dodging traffic ;-)

Happy Running all

I can't do my suggested jog pace for the MyAsics plan either; it hurts my knees to even try and do it! It is nice to go out for a 'slow' 5k though and bizarre to think that even at an easy pace I am still faster than when I first started C25k :)

Enjoy your fast run!

Thanks frocky. I agree it is weird that my easy jog is pretty quick ;-)

My Asics plan wanted me to do 9.45 per KM, even I can't go that slow....I just do what feels comfortable xx

That's a good time for a slow pace! Enjoy tomorrow's run and watch out for those cars!!

I'm sure there is sound science behind the plan, but it does indeed sound strange when it recommends running at a pace you could almost walk. Happy running :)
