I had a bit of a eureka moment whilst eating a boiled egg this morning and I think I may have found the perfect blend of getting my speed and stamina increased whilst aiming for 10K along the way.
Ladies and gents, I give to you the "BettysbOps 8 Week Triple Ess Programme!"
Stretch (Monday eves)
- getting up to to 10k, slow and steady, no need for speed in gradual increments over 8 weeks
(use HM app as recommended by Miles Yonder OR 10%/week increases with MapMyRun app)
Speed (Saturday mornings)
- 5k Parkrun, knock 3 mins off PB by 1st August
(Where there is no Parkrun, use NHS Choices Stepping Stones Podcast)
- 5k up hills
(NHS Choices Stepping Stones Stamina Podcast or replay Week 9 podcast)
This may turn out to be the perfect fit as it will keep me in the "NHS Choices" podcast zone plus entertaining my miniscule attention span by making each run different PLUS it still makes me get out and run 3 times a week.
I have no idea why I posted this, I think I'm looking for wise feedback, I could be also trying to inspire other directionless grads, maybe?
Alternatively I could just be tooting my horn again, such is the life of the only child.
