Hi all, Hope everyone's doing well. Since I graduated (June I think), I've found it really difficult to get to 5K. I'm comfortable at my snail's pace (7.2 KMPH) and manage to cover around 4.5K including the warm up and down.
I'd like to get to 5K but I don't necessarily want to run faster. Should I just run for longer? I'm never going to be an uber-runner but I would like to continue for fitness/weight loss/general health.
Am I ok to continue as I am, do you think, or should I constantly be pushing myself to go faster and further?
I'm happy where I am as I think I can maintain it 3-4 times a week whereas I'm concerned that if I push myself harder that I'll give up?
Any thoughts? Am I just being a bit lazy?
