So while I'm trying to convince myself I do want to go for a run today, I thought I would muse a little in the subject of structure. Frankly I miss it. I loved the c25k plan, I loved knowing what to do next, hearing the right advice for the right time, and that at any given time I could look at other people's blogs and see what they felt about that week or run. Now I'm post graduation I am feeling a bit lost. I thought I had it all planned out, but I haven't actually worked out which podcast I'm going to listen to when (or my own music etc) and so I still don't feel like I have a nice programme to follow.
Some people are happy to do whatever, run til they feel like stopping, or keep up with the 30 mins x 3 per week but wing it a bit. But from past experience, I have realised I need a goal and a fool-proof route to get there otherwise my motivation takes a wee walk on it's own (and it doesn't need any help to do that I can tell you)
In short, people, I need a spreadsheet I am a geek (numbers), I'm married to a geek (computers) and I know many other geeks. And generally speaking, I love a good spreadsheet. I already have a google one for recording my workouts, but I think I need one to map out my plan for the next few weeks til I get to my first goal of 5k and my first parkrun.
And then I'll go for a run....
