W7 R2 completed this morning. I treat every run with a little trepidation just putting one foot in front of the other for the allotted time. I'm getting through the plan but I still find it tiring and hard work. My breathing is definitely better but my muscles are still working really hard. Think its all the weight I'm carrying. So the plan is to complete all 9 weeks and then just concentrate on getting out 3 times a week for 30 minutes. I've looked at my current route on Map My Run and I'm not covering anywhere near 5K but hopefully that might improve in the future. I am now running in the park where the Park Run is held every week. They do two circuits of the main park area including running up an incline (twice) so I was thinking that once I've completed the 9 week plan I'd try and incorporate an incline in the run to get practicing and perhaps increasing the length of route.
Question: I'm a very slow runner - are there any podcasts any of you could recommend to use after C25K that aren't about speed? If not I could just carry on using W9 with Laura I suppose but it'd be good to vary things a bit.
