I've just finished week 6 and finally calibrated my iPod so I've a better idea of how far I'm running in 25 mins....it's not even 4k! Darn. Also I'm getting a bit fed up of the music on the podcasts.
For week 7 I've made playlists - one at songs of 130bpm and one at 140bpm. I'm going to to try running to the slower one and see how I go. It takes just over 5 mins from my house house to the start of the prom, so that's my warm up up and cool down walks. I know that one end of prom to t'other is 4.02km and I'm not managing the whole thing just yet. I reckon I will be by end of week 9 but that's still a kilometre away from the 5k target. I think I might try the speed/stamina podcasts once I've graduated - I want to run that 5k in 30 minutes!
