Boilham... thank you for the advice. I don't run every day. I typically will every other day with walking inbetween.

Push as hard as you can, and then push a little more.

My best tip is to not be over zealous. So easy to overdue running and get an injury that will put a stop to your running while you heal. Take it slow and do not run every day, leave time for rest. I wish someone had told me this when I first started.

Thank you for your help ZORBS... and FYI, I like your quote. emoticon

good information here, thanks - I currently have been doing 5km runs and a friend of mine often does 10km runs.. I have avoided running with him because I haven't run that far before.

I didn't follow a plan to get from 5-10K. I kept my 2 midweek runs at 2-3 miles, and then extended the 3rd weekend run by 1K each week.

You are welcome. Good luck as you progress to the 10k finish line. Keep up the great work.

Thank you so much for your suggestion.... I printed off his 10k Novice training guide.

Thank you so much... I thought I had looked with sparkpeople but obviously I OVERlooked it. :o)

Try Spark Your Way to a 10K.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

I am nearly done with the 5k training guide provided by sparkpeople (I lack roughly a week and a half). I was wondering if any folks know a free user friendly guide to aid in my progression from a 5k to a 10k? Also, any tips from experienced runners would be excellent... I am still quite a newbie. emoticon
