I'm a recent c25k graduate and am running 5k 3 x a week. I have done 2 park runs so far at 38 min and 36 min.

My friend ( who runs marathons) wants us to enter a 10k in 6 weeks time. I've had a look online at training schedules by they all are 4-5 x a week and I can only do 3 runs a week.

Any advice on how I can prepare?

well done on your training! Def take it easy this week. I notice if I am away for a few days and don't run I do better after the break. It's the long term training that counts.

Last training run this morning. In the dark. Brrrr.

Feeling nervous and excited now.

Chops. You're right, ive put in the hours. Now I just hope it goes ok on the day.

I'm a c25k graduate and I'm now doing a bridge to 10k using an app and it is a 6 weeks one like ifink. It by Bluefin software and only cost a couple of quid.

I did it!

What's even more amazing is that I enjoyed it, ran round waving at little kids and generally had fun!

All that training paid off, i beat all my PBs too.did 5k in 32min, 8k in 50. I think I did the 10k in 1.13 but final times published tomorrow.

So happy. Thank you all for all your great advice and encouragement.
