Can I realistically go from only doing a 5K event just this week, to possibly doing a 10K event in September? Is that unrealistic or is it achievable?
I’ve looked at a 10K training programme and it’s designed to get you doing 10K in 8 weeks. It also says it for people who can run/walk 5K in 40 minutes. I’m a little over that.
I really do want to do this race. I want to improve and get fitter and stronger. I want a goal to work towards.
This is the training programme and having read it all, it does seem fairly achievable….
I think what I will plan to do is this… Try it out. See how it goes for two weeks and if I feel that I could actually do this I will enter the race and bloody well go for it.
Yes? Or am I aiming to high too quickly?
What do you think?
