I just thought i would share my new found love for the graduate podcasts - i tried the speed one through recommendations here (runningnearbeirut et al.) I just wanted to say the speed thing was a shock to my system and found it hard but good. This week i did the stamina podcast and i also loved it, what i love is laura is back. However i didn't manage to finish the podcast as i really wanted to do 5km in 31minutes, when i did 5km i was over by 27seconds so got in a huff.
I was finding the first 3/4km of every run hard and i now know why - i am not picking up my feet. I am bit slow but actually by doing the podcasts this has helped me and got my time down. Plus enjoyed doing something different on my runs.
On Monday i did 8km in 54minutes - so i am going to try a longer run again on saturday because i feel well rested at the moment and this time i am going to take the audiofuel podcast i downloaded to see if this helps me. Aiming to do anything between 5-8km. I still feel like a baby runner needing help!! Just running i feel like i am not improving just adding distance. So thought i would give this audio fuel podcast ago (expensive) but i feel like the coaching will help.
