A little update on my progress this week.
After attempting B210k for a few weeks I decided 3 long runs a week was too much and I was hating going back to walking intervals. It was feeling like such a slog and I was starting to feel like it was a chore rather than something to look forward to.
I decided to make my runs shorter but increase to 4 per week with one long run increasing distance/time each week. This week I did a 5k run on Monday, then a 20min fartlek run Tuesday. This morning I ran 7.5k in 54mins which I'm really pleased with. I was aiming for 8k and probably could've ran further but I was running out of time before work. Will need to plan my route a bit better next time and get out of bed earlier!
I'm doing my first parkrun this Saturday so really looking forward to that. Then I have 3 weeks until my 10k race so will just stick to the same programme but increase my long run distance. Hoping for a 10k time under 1hr 10mins.
I'm not sure if I should go public with this but I'm also seriously considering a half marathon in September. Eek I don't know, it sounds so insane considering I only started running in February but the more I think about it the more I really want to do it. Any thoughts?
