I graduated a year ago and ran all through the winter and into July but when the hot weather hit - that was me done. My body simply does not like exercising in the hot weather (safe to say I will never be a Bikram Yoga fiend!). As I get up at 0545 to go to work an early weekday run in the cooler temperatures was never going to happen. I did get the odd run in in September but abandoned almost as many as I started. Then I caught some bug which laid me low for a couple of weeks.
Anyway, enough of the excuses, tonight was going to be my new start and week1 run1 with Laura was on the cards to see how I would do - but when I looked on my i-pod, eeek c25k had disappeared! But Bridge to 10k was there so I thought I'd give the first podcast a go and see how it went. As it was the beginning of the year when I last did this programme I had forgotten how many runs there were and the timings. So run 1, surprisingly accomplished OK, then run 2 and 3 and - amazingly, to me, run 4 - and there were some hills along the way! OK so there were the 3 1xminute walking breaks but I still did all 4 runs! I stopped/started my Garmin for each run segment and managed 5.97km in the 4x10min segments.
Not sure how I'll feel in the morning but this evening I feel great. Next run scheduled for Thursday.
