Question for the runners...
Didn't want to hijack the running thread but I have a question that could benefit from your experience. I have just finished Couch to 5K and would like some suggestions as to what to do next. If you all could think back to your early days of running and give me some tips, that would be great.
I don't know if I should work on increasing speed, increasing distance, increasing both??? I did C25K based on time, and while I can go for 30 minutes at least, it's not really 5K in terms of distance yet.
Basically I would do the C25K 3 times a week; I now have one day a week of run/walk interval training, one low intensity cardio day, and one or two days of tennis as well. I am looking for some direction to continue the running a couple days a week. It's kind of cool, since I was always the "lagger" in school when we'd have to run in phys ed.
Thanks for your thoughts!
And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
