Life after Couch to 5K

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:
