Stamina run completed - felt pretty good today

I used the C25k+ stamina podcast again today and felt pretty smooth. Warm up fine, set off at 6mph for 10 mins, then moved up to 6.5mph for 20 mins and finished off with a burst of 5 mins at 7.5mph. (Breathing like a train at the end but it feels so good when it stops ;-). Feeling really chuffed with myself. I do find myself counting 1,2,3,4 (mostly in my head) along with the beat. Today my breathing seemed to get in step as well - weird.

I know this was really pushing it today for me but I did the speed one 2 days ago and found it really good as well. I plan to take the next one a bit more gently. I think wearing my C25K graduate running vest helped - it arrived yesterday.

Happy Running Thursday all
