Well.....I started this program 11 weeks ago. Since my graduation i have managed a further 6 runs ( 3 times a week for me!) and i have always used week 9 with Laura. This morning i fancied trying something a little different, so i thought i would give the C25K+ podcasts a go.
Un-decided with which one to do, i asked my 3 year old daughter to pick a number between 1, 2 & 3 - she choose number 3, Stamina! Ok i thought to myself, i will give this a go.
For the first time ever, i have been defeated, but i did give it a good go!
The first 10 minutes were fine (1,2,3,4 constantly counting in my head), during the second set of 10 mins, think i was about 8 mins in, i had to stop and walk to catch my breath and then i rejoined the programe for the third ten minute set. I was suffering at this point. I was almost pleased Laura said i had 60 seconds to go as i thought i was done, but then she dropped the bombshell... lets finish off with an energising futher 5 min run. it was at this point i switched Laura off and walked the rest of the way home.
I am not a quick runner. I cover about 4.82k in 30 mins - but i am a runner. This particular podcast will not beat me. Next saturday, i will be doing it all over again!
