Building distance for 10K in July - 6.5K tonight :-)

Funny, it didn't seem hard to carry on once I'd done my 5K, sweaty and breathing heavy - yes (I've always been a classy bird ;-) ) but not beyond my ability, but once I got home I started getting niggly aches again, like I did from time to time in C25K - so glad I decided not to try and finish the additional circuit but to keep roughly within the 10% rule - who knows what I might have done to myself! So - 6.5 towards the 10 I need in July (gonna have to build some late hills in once I've got the distance) - Weds night will be easy exploring night :-) 30 mins of gentle exploring local lanes - nice :-)

Happy running everybody x

  • Well done Potty, making progress and on target, much better than pushing it and damaging yourself. Good luck with the exploring!

  • Well done, Potty, it all sounds as though it's coming along nicely! I'm training for a 10k in July too, so I'm slowly increasing my distance like you are. I'll look out for your progress - it might spur me on!

  • Hi, Potty :) I love your pseudo. No point pushing it too fast - I can only imagine running 6.5 k in my wildest dreams for the moment. Hope you're having fun exploring those lanes :-D
