Finished C25K and looking for next program

I Finished C25K on Friday and wanted to share some of the positive health effects that resulted from doing it.


I lost 12 lbs.


W1D1 resting heart rate: 67 bpm

W9D3 resting heart rate:  56 bpm


W1D1 average heart rate at 10 min/mile pace: 187 bpm and a perceived exertion of 7-8

W9D3 average heart rate at 10 min/mile pace: 164 bpm and a perceived exertion of 6


I feel great!


Now I'd like your feedback.


The 10K is probably the limit to my running ambition.  I have found other programs (5K and 10K) on but the training schedules increase to 5 days per week.  What's up with that?  I want to use running as a component of my fitness program but not the core.  I believe that I could do a 10K without much additional training.


What are your suggestions for increasing weekly mileage on a 3 day per week schedule?
