Starting January 2013, anyone else?
How is everyone getting on? I've just finished week 5 and despite thinking I wouldn't be able to do day 3, I actually found it easier than day 2. I think I found my rhythm towards the end. And when the voice said "You are half way" I thought, wow, that was 10 minutes already?!? 5km seems achieveable now
Week 8 and I ran my first 5k today in 27 minutes. Still got 1 week to go the rpogramme works!
Hi Newbie just jumping in here! good to meet you all
Iv'e been running for about 3 months now and finished a 5k programme last week (Zombies, Run 5k).
I still can't run the whole 5k distance without walk stops. I seem to have trouble with keeping a slow pace, I tend to run too fast and so need to take walk breaks and have tried paced music, smaller strides and all sorts. Anyone have any tips as I feel that any slower is a struggle as I would say that I "jog" rather than "run" (around 10kph)
Also would be keen to hear what people do once they finish the 5K. I am currently just trying to increase the length of time I can run for and have downloaded a couple of other structured plans from this site to work on.
Encouraging to think there are other people out there in the same situation. I actually drempt I was running a smooth pace last night and felt I could run on and on...shame I woke up! lol!
