what are you planning on following to get upto 10k? I am a couple of weeks behind but I never planned on stopping at 5k. My target is to do the half marathon faster than I did the GNR 10 years ago (2hours 10mins) but I am a few stones heavier now so it's awhile away.
Aye it has helped. I am screenshotting my strava app after a run and sending it to my two best mates for accountability. One of them is a really good runner and the other is really into his kettlebells workouts so we are encouraging each other as much as we can. There is an SMB club on Strava...
Have a read of this post. That was what I did 5 years ago and what I plan to do now. I’ve got one run left on C25K (tomorrow). I did a little interval session on one of my rest days the other day because I just want to run more. I hadn’t deviated from C25K at all up until then. I’m going to do another interval session on Friday, then on Sunday I’m going to set out to do a very slow 10k. I know from last time that I can do it. I won’t be concentrating on my time at all, just making sure I go the distance.
Then from Monday I’ve got a 5-week plan lined up to improve my 5K time. Then I’m going to move onto a 10k plan. Both plans are in ‘Runners World Complete Guide To Running’ which I bought recently. There are training plans in it for all abilities up to and including marathon distance. I always like to have a plan and a target. Just look online though, there are plenty of training plans available. Just pick a distance and a target and you’ll find something.
