I completed my week 7, run 1 of 25 minutes yesterday. It did get a bit easier after the first 10 minutes or so, but I had to push myself to keep going. I have my first 5k race lined up in 13 days time during a trip to Las Vegas. I had no idea how fast I was running (or should I say how slow?!) but I know I'm not very fast at all. I just worked out that it's maybe around 7kph.
Does anyone have any advice how I could try and work on upping the pace a little in the next 10 days, without exhausting myself? Or working on endurance? My main goal will be to complete the 5k, but this still feels an epic challenge at this stage. At my pace, I will have to run for 45 mins, but I can only just manage 25 mins and around 3km.
Any advice is much appreciated.
