So my recent cry for help was to ask if it was possible to run a 10k race in 4 weeks time when I had only completed week 7 of c25k. I got mixed replies, mostly saying what I was already thinking. My longest run up until Saturday was just under 4k, so it felt like a huge stretch to achieve 10k.
So last night was wk 8, run 1, and I decided to push myself and see what I could achieve. Well I managed 6k! In 41 mins (about 2 of those were walking, as I needed the loo!). Hardly lightening speed but that is not my primary goal, I just want to cover the distance, take part in the race and can accept if a little walking is required occasionally. I am now going to build a plan that my Monday run increases by 1k a week up to the race - and assuming a remain injury free I am going to go for it. Wish me luck - see you on the other side
