This morning I did my first run after graduating and without the podcasts and boy, was it a struggle! I hadn't been tracking my distance throughout the programme so was curious to see if I was actually running 5k...I was pleasantly surprised that I managed 5k in 32mins on a day when I felt completely rubbish!
I'm going to download the 5k+ podcasts and see if these keep me motivated, as well as actually being able to listen to my own music now. Does anyone have any tips on staying motivated after C25k? I want to start taking part in parkruns but wasn't sure if I was quite there yet.
Now, here is my biggest problem...I'm moving next weekend!! I'm moving from Milton Keynes (where I have a lovely quiet run along the canal) to Hendon (NW London). I don't know the area that well but I really want to find somewhere I can run outside still so I don't have to resort to a treadmill, but very conscious that it may be difficult to find somewere safe to do so. I don't mind if it's a tube or bus journey away - any suggestions for local parks, routes or gyms are very welcome!
Also, I downloaded the Run the Map app for Windows phone this morning in order to track my run and was very happy with how simple and effective it was...and it didn't eat up my phone data!
