Hiya. I'm on week 8 and starting to look ahead to post graduation. I'm the sort of soul that needs a target or I get lazy, and after 8 weeks of hard work I don't want to fall off the treadmill-so to speak!
2 of my run routes include big hills, so I have decided that post W9R3, I am going to concentrate on getting up them faster than my current crawl-was pretty sure I was overtaken by a snail up one today!! But once I have achieved that, I would like to increase my running time to get to 1hr (therefore at current speed aprox 10k).
So far I have run injury free, which I put down to the slow and steady philosophy, so how long should I wait before increasing my run times by the magical 10%?
If my somewhat haphazard maths is correct, I should be up to 10K from 5K over a 9-10 week period; but want to make sure I'm not making things too hard that I give up!
