Thanks to inspiration from Maztink and others on these fora - my sort of post-grad plan is sort of shaping up. Idea was to repeat C25k, this time using Laura podcast and jog the walking bits and run the running bits. Mr Gillma joined in (a good thing) and made getting out of the house and coping with synchronising podcasts and our varying paces tricky (a slightly challenging thing but also bonding).
Was worrying I was losing hard-won gains but today ran 32mins (alone, with my old app coach Sarah Millican) in alternating rain, wind and sun, so feel I am still post-graduate.
Am thinking that one recent person's post (will try to credit) about volume of running bears study. And I could carry on with C25k repeat (we are on w2 currently) and start dropping in more demanding solo runs in between. And maybe try stepping stones again (couldn't manage it the other day).
This might mean that C25k repeat becomes a sort of rest day activity. Mmmm, not sure how wise this is. Any thoughts, welcome. TIA - and run happy!
