Okay, here is what I did to get from 5K to 10K in about 8 weeks I believe. Go find the Spark my way to 10K. I modified it since I was already running 5K, I cut off the first couple of weeks. You can run a 10K by May emoticon .

Go to the search and select Sparkpeople and type Spark 10K

I'm in the same boat as you. I've signed up for a 10 km May 30th. I'm just finishing the C25K program right now. I've accepted that I probably won't be able to run the whole 10km. But, I'll train hard and run 10:1 intervals on race day if I have to. Good luck!

in my experience, it has been difficult to see appreciable gains jogging twice a week. I typically need to do 3-4 (preferably 5) to see gains that -I- am satisfied with. that said, you will likely build a decent base by jogging twice a week. my gut tells me, however, that you'll have a tough time completing a 10k by may.

but part of the fun is in trying to shatter expectations. ;]

My fitness level? Not sure..I guess somewhere in the middle. On the treadmill I walk at least a 3.5 and run at least a 5.

Hi:

I think it´s possible, althought thrice a week would be better.

I would sugguest on doing your runnings very early on the mornings rather than during nights.

Good luck!!

Hello there. I am new to running and am on week 2 of the spark to 10k plan. I am planning on doing a 10k in May. Do you think this is possible if I am only running twice a week for training? My issue is my kids. The only time I have to exercise is at night when they go to sleep and I do an exercise DVD. On the weekends I can run outside and/or go to the gym because hubby is here. What do you think? Possible?
