Couch to 5K

Completed WK 7 R 1 this morning and ran 3.5K in the 25 minutes.Is this a decent pace?

I was just wondering if I need to step it up a gear?

I am running so that I feel comfortable and I did feel at the end as though I perhaps could have run for another five minutes.

I am interested to find out what kind of distances others are running and if I should be pushing myself more.

Still loving the programme - Feeling like I could achieve this now! Yippeeeee!!

The pace sounds good!

And you ran it. Well done!


I would defintely stay at the 'feeling comfortable' This is a great place to be, and if you feel you could have run for another 5 minutes this is very positive and will help with going forward to the next levels.

Stepping it up a gear is something to aim to do once you've finished the nine weeks....all in good time! You don't want to push it and injure yourself unneccesarily


Just listen to your body. I had the same question a week ago and was told focus on minutes. all in time....
