How far?

Just finished week 7 of couch to 5k! This week, all three runs were 25 minutes. It was hard, but I did it! I looked ahead to next week, and the first run is 28 minutes. I’m already thinking that 3 more minutes is gonna be super hard. We’ll see. Only one more week, then apparently, I can run a 5k.

I’m already thinking about how far and how often I should run after the program is done next week. Running 3 days a week has been ok, it’s become part of my routine now. So I think I’ll stick with that. But, how far should I run each day? Should I set a mile or minute time each day? Or should I just go by how I’m feeling during each run? And what about when winter gets here? Is it harder to run in cold weather?

Anyone got any answers for me?

  1. Not really answers as I started the c25k program and then branched out on my own. I began by upping my distance and not worrying so much about the time. After I got to the point of being able to run 2 miles, each week I added a tenth of a mile. Now I’m jogging 3 miles and just ran my first 5k race last Saturday. Don’t try and up your distance too quickly..that can lead to injury. Good luck..you can do this!
