Couch to 10k in under 12 weeks!

Very slow but my first ever 10k run tonight! I can’t believe it! Only graduated just over 2 weeks ago but I just seemed to be able to plod on once I got in the pace. 6k after graduation, 7.4 last week and 10k tonight. Have kept to three runs a week. As well as the long run, I’ve done a ParkRun and a shorter slightly faster paced run. I’m amazed! Less than 12 weeks ago I struggled with one minutes and I’ve just run for 1 hour 18 mins! Time to consolidate. 10k is far enough for now!

Thank you!

Congratulations! You're an inspiration - I graduated the same week as you, but have given running a miss for 2 weeks because of a bad back.

I'm back on board as of today, and reading your post is a great encouragement.

Well done, you're brilliant!

I'd like to know that too. Not that I'm near completing C25K yet.

Tasha99Graduate in reply to Kingtheo

There is Ju-Ju’s 10k plan you can sign up to over on the bridge to 10k forum in the pinned posts. Nothing to play as your run though but there might be an app you can buy? Good luck!
