So since I finished the Couch to 5K program in January, my running has been rather inconsistant. I've been running but I either stop at 2 miles, or I push myself to a 5K run or just simply do a 20 minute one here and there. I'm not structured anymore like I was when doing the program. I just kinda go with the flow sort of thing and I apparently don't have the dicipline to force myself to set running schedule. Since finishing the program in January, I *may* have actually done a 5K full run 3 times.
I know one thing is for sure, I really need to find a new and different environment. I can go run around the LSU lakes and that is definitely an option for me. I just need to actually go and do it and that will help with the boredom and give me some new scenery. As evidenced by my last post about the Lakes.
So my thinking is this... I can either download the Bridge to 10K app and proceed with that or, I can try to get to where I run a 5K three times per week and then gradually increase time/distance each week beyond that. Either way, I really think I need to be more consistant.
Runners out there, how did you continue on after you got to your 5K runs? Did you follow a plan or did you just wing it? Should I try to work on improving my very slow pace before building distance?
