I'm wrapping up the Galloway 10k plan, just for fun, after regularly running 2-4 miles for a couple of years as a way to get my distance up and challenge myself. Did some walk/running, but recently did the 7 mile run without walk intervals. Tough, but doable. I did some weeks twice, as needed, and have broken my PRs for mile splits.

Now considering a HM when running season starts here again in the fall....

Do a search online, but I simply increase my running a little each week for a few weeks to get to 10k.

Thank you. The more tools, the better! I also have to tell you that when I see your weight loss and PRs, you are a real inspiration. Thanks even more for that.

If you're interested there's a program on the Podrunner Intervals called Freeway to 10K that builds you up to a 10K like the Couch to 5K does by mixing in walk breaks with running until your running the whole thing. You can download the 9 week series at iTunes.

Thanks. I'll get out there this weekend and shoot for 4 miles! I've been training on the treadmill lately, so have been keeping the mileage to 3 or under due to sheer boredom.

If you've run a number of 5Ks already, just increase your long run every week (or every other, whatever you're comfortable with). All you really need is to work up to 4 miles in order to run a 10K. It may be not fast, but you will get through it. Of course, it's better to work up to 6 miles before your race. Just increase a mile at a time. There's plenty of time to get prepared.

Have fun with it!!!

Anyone have a good training plan to get to the next level - from 5K to 10K? I'm registered for my first 10K on June 1st and have run a number of 5Ks in the past couple of years. Thanks!
