6 weeks ago I was knackered after running for 60 seconds. Last night (W7R1) was both the furthest distance and longest time I have ever run in my life! I don't want graduation to be the end of my journey, so i'm starting to plan for post graduation
The set of podcasts for after the couch to 5k plan, which alternate between speed work and stamina work, I might try those, but I do have a different plan for when I finish the course, which is as follows.
As soon as I can run 5k without stopping, start doing some Saturday morning parkruns. If I can't get to a parkrun, then at least do one run a weekend which is at least 5k.
In between those during the week, restart the couch to 5k course, but this time do the running parts of the sessions at a much faster running pace than my current plod.
I'll do that for a few weeks and see what happens I think. I know some people talk about restarting and jogging the walking bit and upping the pace for the running bits, but I think that might be quite tricky to say the least. Re-doing the course but significantly upping the pace for the runs is my idea. I was wondering if anybody else has done the same?
