So I'm just finishing the fourth week of training now and I'm not doing too badly.
I'm working on an intervals plan at the moment (based on Couch to 5k in 6 weeks), but the intervals are huge. (This week; 5 mins walk, 18 mins run, 2 mins walk, 18 mins run, 2 mins walk.) I'm doing well at it but unfortunately, the programme I'm working from now (the Fun Run app for BlackBerry) only goes up to 5k. I'm going to pick up the 10k plan from Running Made Easy, which uses much shorter intervals. I'll let you know how I get on with that.
At the end of week 4 I'm up to 3.6 miles (5.8km) and seriously considering entering the Penn Seven this year for Iain Rennie Hospice at Home.
