Week 7 complete - 2 weeks left

Wooo! Week 7 done. Three 25 min runs. Went quite well. I'm not starting my Endomondo until I run now rather than counting the warm up/warm down walks. Each time I ran 2 miles in 25 mins pretty consistently. My best mile was 12.03. I believe grown up runners call it a personal best. ; ) Not sure whether that is OK or not? Seems a tall order to get to over 3 miles in the next two weeks but I shall do my best!

Thinking about the next stage. I have downloaded Bridge to 10K tentatively but I'm going to stay focused on that 5K goal first. My Uncle has said he will do the 5k Park run with me so I aiming to do that on 5th May. He is running the marathon so a 5k will be a walk in the park for him!

Here's to week 8 and 28 minute runs. Hope to up that distance and get another PB mile in.

  • Wow! well done Stace! I am restarting week 7 after a wobble and deciding to redo week 6 again. I managed the 25 mins ok this eve so feeling positive like you! Good luck with week 8.

  • You too. No more wobbles, the end is in sight : )

  • Hi Stacey

    I couldn't believe when I read your blog post as we're clearly on the same timeline. I too finished week 7 today and am planning my first organised 5k on 5th May. I'm also not sure about how I'll get to 5k in the next two weeks but then I never would have believed I'd get this far! I've downloaded Endomondo but haven't started using it yet. I know how far 5k is where I run so I just try and get a bit closer to that each time. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and I'll keep an eye out for your upcoming posts. Roll on 5th May! Good luck, Julia

    PS. I have several friends running the marathon and I'm pleased to have finally reached the point where I'm at least running more minutes than they are miles!

  • Spooky we're in sync : ) Hope to get closer to that 5K this week. Good luck with yours too! Keep in touch.

  • Well done, Stacey! I'm sure you'll be doing week 8 brilliantly as well!

  • Thanks Tomas, fingers crossed!

  • Well done Stacey! I'm jut a run or two behind you, W7R3 tomorrow. I've been finding the longer runs much harder but am just happy to finish each one and tick it off! Sounds like you're making some good progress - as I trail a few runs behind, good to have someone ahead to aim to emulate :)

    Enjoy!!! :)

  • The 25 mins is a bit more difficult. I find once I'm halfway I'm fine though. I don't like to know how long I've got left though and Laura always pipes up. Sometimes it's welcome, sometimes not so much!

  • Well done you :)

    Currently on W7 myself so its great to read how you did with it.

  • Thank you! Good luck : )

  • Excellent! I am a week behind you..See you at the 5k starting line!

  • Arrghh! Not long now. Exciting.

  • Ah thanks for all your comments. This forum is just great. : ) Week 8 commences tomorrow wooo hoo!
