    Running a 10 K in 72 minutes is a good time

    Congratulations. You show some potential as a runner. But, I agree with the answer from . . The increase in distance in that amount of time is too much. You're increasing the risk of injury.

    Going from can't run a 1K ( 0.62 miles) to running a 10K (6.2 miles) in 11 days is risking injury. There's a difference in "can't run" (tried, but was unable to) and "have never run" (never really tried).

    Couch to 5K (3.1 miles) training programs are usually about 8 wks long, to gradually build up distance while reducing risk of injury. Be careful you don't ask your body to do more than it can safely do.

      8 weeks is just to much I’m going to try and run 21k (half marathon) in less than a werk

    Great job Lucy. You should consider trying out for the cross country team at school.
