Given I had success with the speed podcast yesterday, I thought I'd try the stamina podcast for my 10k run tonight. I enjoyed the first 30 mins of the england game but sadly it felt a bit familiar in the second half so went out for my run so I could get back before headtorch o'clock. Still gutted at the result and got updates on my watch as I ran. Footie aside it was a beautiful and cooler evening to run into, and I was focusing on my form again with laura. I made a real effort to drive my arms forward and parallel to the ground, they often come up as if i'm playing drums to some 80's rock track. This seemed to help me make better forward progress, and the good old 1,2,3,4 mantra kept the cadence quicker.
I often breathe on three and i think this leads me to have a far too slow cadence ie 150-155 so I really need to up this.
Once the podcast ended at 35 mins, I just kept going at 165bpm and that felt fine. I think running to a constant bpm really helped me keep the pace far more constant than my random and eclectic music playlist seems to provide.
Anyways a good run, albeit a shame to walk in the door to such an unlucky result.
