Over the past week, I have travelled almost 1000 klms south from Brisbane [inland] and have finished week 6 of the modified C25K that am doing-- having departed from the version that you all are doing after completion of week 5. This week I have to do 3x12 minute runs each day of the week's 3 days with 1 minute walk between. So far - so good.
i am not sure that I enjoy these longer running times and I am fairly sure that I will eventually settle into a 5/1 ratio or something like that for the longer runs that I will eventually get into.
My 30 travelling companions - all or retired age like me -all look at me with amazement, horror and disbelief as I take off each morning around sunup to run 5Ks on the quiet outback highways where we camp. I am feeling quite good about my running though and notice that I am able to easily walk distances that they refuse to even contemplate.
bast wishes to all
