Hey guys! So I'm new at running for distance...
I tested out my endurance on the treadmill the other day and ran 3.5 miles! (on 6.4 or 6.5 speed, can't remember which.) It wasn't even difficult until the last few minutes.
I was thinking of going for 4 miles on Wednesday, then doing a 5K on Saturday. Is this advisable? Enough rest from Wednesday's run?
There is another race my sister wants me to do with her on May 7th - 4 weeks from Saturday's 5K. When she first told me about it I was planning on doing 5K but now I'm thinking I might go for 10K. Do you think I can get there in time? Does anyone have any good 4-5 week training schedules for someone at my starting point? The ones I found online where 10 weeks and so.
There isn't another 10K in the Nashville area until July 4th, so if I can be ready by May 7th that would be awesome!
Thanks for any help!
