Well still on my return to getting back to 5k. So maybe not recommended but last sunday did wk1 and wk2 runs together back to back, followed by wk2/wk3 on Tuesday and wk3 twice on Friday and wk3/4 on sunday, but just couldnt manage the last 2 minutes of the last 5 minute run! Which I supposed showed I overdid it. So tonight I just did wk4 and nailed it! Overall I cant believe that I lost all my stamina (and had real problems breathing) etc whilst being off with my dodgy knees, which are holding up fine. So I think that doing the 2 runs may have challenged me but increased my stamina again-but cant see me doing any more at this level. plan to do wk5 next and still dread the 20 minute run looming ahead....
