Well, it was cold for me! Last week it was about 23 degrees here, today it was about 3 when I went for my run.
Massive storms had been forecast which led all schools to be closed nationwide. Fortunately, the storm wasn't as bad as forecast, so I have gained a bonus day in which to (try to) catch up with an awful lot of work and fit a run in
So today was my last interval run in my bridge to 10k training. I managed to run for two lots of 30 minutes with a minute walk in between. Listened to an audio book for the first 25 or so minutes, then had the lovely Laura talking me through the Stepping Stone podcast. I have to say I completely ignored the advice about running to the beat (which is a shame, as I think that's the whole point of the podcast!), but it was nice to have her words of encouragement and info about how much longer till a change of track or pace.
The next one is one hour without stopping. I have no idea when I'll manage it - I think it would be good to have a couple of rest days before attempting it (I was surprised how well I did today - I hadn't run since Saturday, so all those extra rest days must have been worth it). I think I read here that someone said if you can run for half an hour, you can run for an hour. Well, I think they might just be right, just need to get out there and prove it for myself!
I don't think I'll hit 10km unless I have a flat route or keep going for more than an hour (today I did 9.5km), but am very pleased with my progress so far
