Only 2.6 miles at 28 minutes
I thought I had been doing well as I started W8 but I decided to check my distance alongside the app and it seems I’m still 1/2 mile off 5k with only a week left ?! Should I be closer to 5k as I start W9 ?
I'm at week 8 and I'm no where near doing 5k ..I am so slow... trying not to focus..sure I can get faster..sounds like you are near to hitting your target..🤩
Hi Sofabunny .. I think I’ve focused too much on reaching 5k in 30 minutes ... we should both congratulate ourselves on reaching week 8 !!! I’m going to forget distance I think ... here’s to W9 👍🏻
You're doing fine! Couch25k is just a catchy title - all you are required to do to graduate is to run for 30mins 3 times. The distance doesn't matter - in fact the majority of people (something like 90%) do not reach 5k in 30mins by the end of week 9. Speed/Distance, if you want to, can be worked on once you've graduated x
Thanks for your reply .... I genuinely thought I needed to be at 5k in 30 minutes... so thanks for your reassurance 😁 I’m going to just concentrate on getting through W9 👍🏻
No...no need... you just run and enjoy... all you need to do is to run for the thirty minutes....in Week 9
Many folk never, ever do 5K in 30 minutes... and many of them are now Marathon runners
Time for speed and distance comes later You are doing fine... relax and just run
Thanks Oldfloss ... I will definitely concentrate on enjoying and feeling good that I’m even at this stage 😃
You do that... you are awesome
So much wisdom in the replies to your question! This forum is the best! 😀
Have fun running. 🏃♀️🏃♀️
I know ... this forum is just fab 😁
I will never be a 30min 5k runner, just can't run that fast!! 🐌🐌🐌🐌🐌🐌
It seems speed just doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things after reading people’s replies 😃 at least we are running 🏃♂️ 🏃♀️
the door, after Hubble left for work. After starting the new term, W7R3 had been hard, despite going back...
So had a go at Laura's \"speed\" podcast again (this time without falling over... ) Got well into it...
but just not very far. I've only managed 4.2k. I thought that I'd be closer to 5k by now. The problem...
