Ah, I feel amazing right now! Managed to extend the 5 mile run to cover 10k for the first time since I was about 12 years old. In fact, that's definitely the furthest I have ever run in one go. Bit of a headf**k if I am honest! 70 mins 21 seconds!
If anyone is wavering about doing this programme, following the podcasts / app or worried about how much effort it is - really, just get out there and do it! I could barely run 1 minute intervals at the end of January, and now I am running for 70 minutes non-stop. I am well and truly hooked on running.
Oh, and the added benefits of losing a bit of weight and gaining some muscle can't be overlooked either
Doing my first 10k race 6 weeks tomorrow. I said at the time that I'd do it in around 70 minutes - confident I can get that down to 65 or so by the time I get to the start line now. The myasics plan has been really helpful in getting me to slow down and think more of the pacing.
Certainly helped that its a lovely day out there
Next couple of weeks training is intervals and faster, shorter runs - time to get that 5k time down to around 30 minutes!
Now.... where is Ju's race report already? I can't wait to hear how she's done!
