Parkrun today and 9:2. My music worked this time and it just happened that my favourite running song was on. The one I’ve used from the start, to visualise myself doing awesome running events like a parkrun, 5k, 10K half marathon etc. That kept me going especially during the early runs. Well today the song came on as we set off and I suddenly realised this was for real. All the runners in front of me bobbing along the song playing and the voice in my head said “omg you’re actually doing this” I actually had a few (happy) tears
9:2 it’s been emotional : Parkrun today and 9:... - Couch to 5K
Many graduates consolidate on 30 minutes. B210k forum will welcome you to the next ju-ju magic plan.
Personally, I followed the 10% rule - adding 10% to total running time and consolidated on 40 minutes
So W10 was 3x 33minutes W11 36m and W12 40m.
Hopefully that will roughly match your time to do 5k distance
