Audiofuel - Pyramid intervals - that was fun :-)

I have been using speed podcast for a while - but got very bored with it. So I tried the pyramid podcast today - really enjoyed it - certainly got my feet and heart moving. and I liked the building up to longer sprints and then the wind down. I am not anywhere near being able to sprint 400 yards yet - but that will be my next challenge. As well as trying to run in 155 heart beats zone - mine is much higher no matter how slow I run.

So feel that was a good work out today and was a good confidence boosting run. Onward with my second B210k run later in the week.

The real challenge is what do about the little robin sitting on my high indoor window ledge - he is quite content just looking down at me, but clearly he can't stay there....he has come down to kettle now - maybe i can catch him....

  • I tried the C25K+ Speed Podcast, and found it a bit too much of a step up.

    Which Audio Fuel Podcast are you using? Is it this one?

  • Yes - it is the green - max 180

  • Eeek, not sure if I am ready to try this one yet. I struggled with the 160 bpm from C25K+ (Speed). I tried to count my paces out as Laura did, and think I am not much better than 150 bpm (and being able to sustain that rate). I haven't really tried in my new shoes though.. I shall try again I think, but aim for a shorter run.

    Thanks for the confirmation though.

  • Great Audiofuel workout, did it make you feel like a kid when you were running flat out :-)

  • completely - I was grinning from ear to ear all the way :-)

  • Yes, it's a real laugh. I find it easier than C25K+ Speed, and it is great for when you don't have much time or you are somehow not in the mood. I found the 'take smaller steps' very helpful and 'steel yourself to go again' and 'recover as best you can' are wonderfully pragmatic.
