10%

Two schools of thought.

One says “never increase your distance or time by more than 10% of the previous week.”

As Runner’s World states.

Another refutes this almost directly.  As seen here.  Of course, this opinion comes from what reads to be an absolute MONSTER of a runner, in terms of weekly / session distances.

I have chosen a middle ground, adding Bridge weeks into the Learn to Run program.  Having suffered an injury in “Week 6” (April) and being injured right now in “Week 8” (September), I am led to lean more toward the cautious and conservative.
