So I finished the couch to 5k at the start of September. All that month I run 30 min 3 times a week to maintain my progress and get used to the distance.
I decided to start a 10k training program. I started one that is 7 weeks long, and progresses quite rapidly. The first week was 2 runs of 2 miles and 1 long run of 2.5 miles.
I was able to complete that week no problem, The long run was long but doable. The next week started at 2.5 miles as the short run. I feel that progressing that fast was too much for me.. so I looked for another.
I found the couch to 10 k program. I am going to start on week 7, running a full 25 min. I feel better about this progress.
My goal is to run for my whole life and I cannot do that by pushing too far.
Wish my luck.... week 7 starts tomorrow.
More runs like this one to come:
