5km a day in September
1st 5km in the bag.
Did a parkrun today.. i guess i'm on track so far!
30 of 30 in 30 challenge.
run 1 done . I did 6.23k (roughly) but thats sort of 5kish......
Yep, good to know others out there are thinking alike!
Did my first run Ok today, up on Strava if anyone cares.
I'm trying to keep HR to 150bpm and below (started mid July) until early October, but it does mean I have to go slow (10mm, inc walk break occasionally)
I might put an occasional longer run in there if I feel inclined ot its needed, but I'm not feeling any obligation to go long / do intervals etc.
I like the focus on form. I'll think of the "two strings" when I run!
stay with the MAF HR - it works but it takes a couple of months......sustainable speed you can keep up 'all day' (ok, 4 hrs) is what you are after, and you dont get that with a HR of 160+
Last year I started at 143 max which was a nice tempo run, and 4 months later, It felt like I really had to push to hit 143, and I had to sprint to do intervals at +5 over that. My speed at 143 ended up at 7 minute mileing
I ache today... Got a 30 min run after a bike tomorrow...... whose idea was this?
How many months does the MAF break-in take? Today's Parkrun may take more than a day to get over. Saw 214 on the HR, and currently feeling very very sick
What's the point of doing a 5k every day? What's the end goal, improving your time, distance, fitness?
Because I don't think it will do any of those 3, not being rude just curious.

For me KK its about reestablishing some routine, working at getting my fat burning a little more efficient, nothing to do with distance, or speed.
Ok, if you want to fat burn, do it before you eat breakfast in the morning.
OR, to fat burn, mix it up with weights.
Can't speak for the others, but mine is invariably first thing, before breakfast!
Managed Day 2! Another slow plod, but there is a plan... (I hope!)
Its a great way to start a day......just realised I have ran on both days so could join in....I have been running 5 days a week for the last month or so,............but so slowly...im trying to go by HR.......awaiting for my new garmin to arrive tomorrow
good idea folks, the extra run frequency will bring your running on a lot. When I up my running in the New Year for VLM it always responds well. Not sure that 5K will do much for fat burning, but running early doors on fresh air will develop your ability to burn fat if you do some longers runs. I'm fine for over 20M but need some fuel if theres some effort sections in that 20.
Plenty of stretching please - especially the old folk.
I did this on holiday and by day 8 I could hardly straighten my legs. Although if you are walking 5k like Gladys it shouldn't be an issue.
Fallen at day 2. Still feeling sick from yesterday. Away with work, so will have a run focussed week.
