Re: niblue's post C25K training - still out of action

Not sure if anyone still actually uses this site but I thought I'd give a progress update. My 5K time has improved to 25:42, 10K is down to 56:45 and I did my first half marathon (the Edinburgh one) a couple of weeks back. The time for that was pretty slow (02:29:24) as I struggled in the hear and a...

Re: niblue's post C25K training - still out of action

I've been struggling with a sore calf muscle for the last week however it was feeling a bit better today so I headed out to try a 5K on my flat/fast course. I was pretty sure I'd get under 30 minutes again but managed to slip in just under 29 minutes with a 28:59. That's my 3rd best 5K time ever and...

Re: niblue's post C25K training - still out of action

Cheers Bob. I think I'm pretty much back to where I was in 2014 - it's taken a couple of solid months but I thought it'd take longer so quite pleased with progress at the moment. I've just nipped under 5 minutes for 1 km for the first time every as well with a 4:51, and also got a new 1 mile PB at 8...

Re: niblue's post C25K training - still out of action

In June so far I've already run more than in any single month in the past - 119Km so far. My previous best month was September 2014 when I did 114km. I'm doing more long runs now than I did then - so far this month I'd done 2 x 10K, 1 x 12K and 1 x 13K. This mornings 10K was 1h 05m 28s which was jus...

Re: niblue's post C25K training - still out of action

I've had one go at a "fast" 5K time and improved my best time this year to 30:29. I've been doing some longer runs as well - did a 12Km one at the weekend and a 13km one last night. I'm thinking about gradually increasing the duration of my long runs and maybe having a go at a half-marathon.

Re: niblue's post C25K training - still out of action

Still plugging away, trying to do at least 3 x 5K per week. No improvement in my 5K time yet (haven't tried in fact) although I did do 32:00 in an interval run. I did do a 1hr 9m 10K though.

Also trying to improve my diet to get some weight off.

Re: niblue's post C25K training - still out of action

Back in Edinburgh so headed out for a 5K on one of my usual routes. It's an out and back route - slight uphill and into the wind on the way out. My time for the first 3km was ok so I pushed for the final 2k as I thought I'd be able to improve my 2016 PB. 5:5 and 5:31 for the final (and slightly down...
