So a group of us at work have signed up to the Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest it’s a 10K Obstacle run so I’ve started up C25K to hopefully get in shape and raise my fitness level ready for October.
I skipped week 1 as I have a reasonable level of fitness, did W2 and W3 at the beginning of December and then had a little break over the festive period picked up W4 Sunday just gone, and did W4R2 yesterday. So far so good but I do find myself running too fast even though I can see my pace I just can’t seem to stick to 10kmph I’m running at 11 – 13kmph and I’m not sure I can keep up that pace for more than 5mins solid at the moment.
Has anyone got any advice to help with pace or should I just keep up with my “natural” running speed and wait for my fitness to catch up before progressing to W5?
Also has any one got any experience of Survival of the Fittest I’d love to hear your view on it and any advice you have.
