Redid the last Week 9 run and made it through two intervals and just shy of the third.
Finally finished Week 9. Interval three was a difficult one and my pace went from 5:30min/km to 7:33min/km >_< Contemplating whether to move onto Week 10 or redo week 9 until I can meet the pace.
Tried a different route today. Still sore from the hour run yesterday. This new route turns out to be just under 5k, though I’m not sure it’s right, since my Fitbit seemed to lose communication with my phone so didn’t track the route properly….
Finally did the next run in the 5 to 10 k. Still hurts when I run for an hour, and a tried slightly a different running route. Just over 8k today. Have no idea why the app registered only 5.7k.
First run of the 5 to 10K section and it’s a lot harder. 4x 10-minute runs, with only a 1 minute rest in between. 7K measured by the app, 8.8km measured by Fitbit.
Completed ZenLabs C25K and now looking at the 10K trainer. First run of Week 9 (it continues the C25K plan) is a near-hour set of 10 minutes runs O_O
Found this in this month’s Runners World. A useful guide to picking realistic target times based on your shorter run pace.
