Hello B210K-ers! This is my first post here after graduating C25K a couple of weeks ago. Since graduating I have done a couple of parkruns, a couple of 'I'll just go for a run' runs (30-ish mins), and last week I tried the Stepping Stones C25K+ podcast. I really didn't get on with the stepping stones thing - I felt like I wasn't doing it right. The pace was OK, but it made me run with shorter steps than usual, which I guess means I wasn't moving my legs fast enough. Awful music too. After about 15 mins I gave up, switched to my usual music and jogged home.
I haven't really figured out what my next goal is yet. I want to consolidate 5K (which I can do but still find pretty tough) and speed up a bit. Beyond that I can see myself interested in moving up to 10K, but I'm not in a rush.
I've bought a garmin watch, downloaded strava, heard about myoasics, garmin and various other apps etc. It's all a bit bewildering! One of the (many) wonderful things about C25K was that I didn't have to think - I just did as I was told... I miss that!
I think what I'm really looking for is a version of the C25K+ podcasts that doesn't have the awful music or the BPM thing. Does anyone know of such a thing? Or have any other advice?
