After a weeks break owing to a business trip abroad I caught up with the plan again yesterday evening with the first run in Week 9. It felt good but I ran only 4,4 km - quite some distance below the 5 km I was aiming for. So now I have to increase speed - significantly...
Completed Week 9 - Run 1: After a weeks break... - Couch to 5K
Very well done....not sure why you need to increase your speed... why not just enjoy the rest of the journey to the podium
Plenty of time for speed and distance after the Graduation party? )
Happily completed the series and now I'm chugging along with the 30 minutes every other day. Missing Laura but I now have my own choice of "thump thump" club music which I find great to keep me jogging to a steady rhythm. One day I'll speed up but there's no hurry. Aska, the dog seems happy too
I will be doing W8 R2 this evening and we haven’t got over 4K yet. 1 head is saying that’s fine, just concentrate on making sure you can do the 28 minutes, but I think I will feel like a fraud “graduating C25K” when I haven’t actually run 5K!
Recommended to me because I was worried about making the full 5K
I graduated yesterday and I ran 3.75km. The programmes aim is to get you running for 30 minutes, regardless of speed/distance. You can always speed up in the future. Remember, our bodies are still new to running so don’t risk injuries that could put you out for weeks/months. Just enjoy being able to say “I run for 30 minutes”
“I run 5k” can come later🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♀️
