Week 1 Run 1 in the bag

It feels weird writing that one again, but I've decided to try out the B210K programme. Its only been a couple of weeks since graduating from C25K but was finding running in intervals again really tough. Bathed in sweat at the 30 minute mark, stitch kicking me in the stomach, it brought back some pretty gruelling memories of C25K. I'm still going to try and stick at it though and see how I get on.

I'm following the one described here: blog.bluefinapps.com/about-... with my own music I didn't realise there were different plans?

Enjoy it, first run seemed the worst for me, did not like the 1 minute walk.

Keep up the good work, am about to start week 3 tomorrow.

I know right, 1 minute is not enough! I'm being held back by illness at the moment unfortunately, hoping to get back out there tomorrow though.

roadrunner doing the same one as you, as I like the countdown at 10, 5, 2 and 60 seconds. How do you do this with your own music though?

I'm not using that app, just the timings listed on the page. My setup is basically just a stopwatch app on my phone that's running in the background along with my music.
