Journey to 5k


Ran this morning after over a week of not running. It wasn't too bad, kept it slow and did the 30 minutes. Right now I average about 3.7k. I'm going to start running for 35 minutes now to increase my endurance, and cover more distance. My goal is that by the end of the year I can run 5k, so we'll see how it goes! :)

Edit: I just read about a cool 10% rule in which you either increase your distance or duration by 10%. So I either run for 33 minutes or for distance in my case, 4k. I'm going to alternate with these methods!

Well done on sorting out your plan. It will get you there. Don’t forget to apply for your graduation badge if you’ve completed all 9 weeks. It will be in the Pinned Posts - October is there but November not appeared yet. There’s also a post in there under FAQ what to do after finishing c25k. You have a plan but there might be other ideas in there to interest you.

Enjoy your running.

Thank you! Applied for the badge and I'll have a look at the FAQ's!


This is the guide to post C25k running

The 10% rule is applied to your weekly mileage, so don't keep adding it onto every run.


I like your idea 👍🏻


Good run... you’ll be there before Christmas easily enough... enjoy.
