Couch to 5K

Whoop! Two runs, two PBs

It happened again! After my PB at Parkrun on Saturday (29:26) I went out for my Monday 10k run feeling confident and fit. I set myself a pace of 6:30 to run around, or just under if I could, and maintained the average at around 6:27/km, managing to squeeze it down as the run unfolded, finishing in a time of 64:16. I'm very pleased with that, with Run Jericho (the organised 10K race in Oxford coming up on Sunday week. I've got two more 10k training runs before then, and I think they'll be more gentle runs. When I registered for the race, I'd run 10k twice, and registered with an expected time of about 72 minutes.

Well done Steve.Congrats on the PB!

Take care not to push yourself too hard. Do some recovery runs and look after that bod

Yes, MW. To be fair, I wasn't really straining during this run, but I will be taking it a bit easy during the next couple of weeks in the run up to Run Jericho (apart from next Saturday's Parkrun, perhaps!)

I really have no intention of getting injured. I don't want to make the IC more crowded.

Brilliant. Well done on the PB's. You'll need a new target for your race.

True, actually - a couple of months ago, I had what I thought was an ambitious target of being able to run 65 minute 10ks by the race.
