Hi, I graduated last week (Hooray!) and went out last night for my 2nd post graduation run. Well, up to the end of C25K, I was reaching 3.8km in the 30 minutes, 1st post grad run, reached 4km, then last night got to 4km in the 30minutes, still felt pretty good, and wanted to carry on, and just see if I could reached the magical 5km, and guess what! I did!!!! Ok, according to my Garmin to took 40 minutes and 44 seconds, at a 8.09 pace, but I did it!!!! I felt amazing!!!! Then suddenly remembered that on this forum it is suggested that you only increase your run times by 10% each week! Obviously, I'd gone a long way above that! Should I continue to try and hit 5km when I feel comfortable enough to, or should I go back to my 30 minute runs, and gradually work up?
Any advice welcome! (got day off work today, so also going to get by gait analysised!)
