Following recommendations from other graduates I gave this podcast a go this morning. I started with the Stepping Stone one. The first thing I discovered is that I'm not a very rhythmic person! I found keeping in time to Laura's 1,2,3,4 chants quite a challenge. It was also a much slower pace than I've been running which is interesting as I thought I was slow before. The pace does increase gradually over the 30 mins but my average pace was still only 7:08min/km as opposed to 6:25min/km on my precious run. I carried on past the 30 mins and completed 5k in 35:48 mins. Although slower I am glad I did this as it definitely reminds you of technique- relax shoulders, look ahead etc. The next one is a Speed one so I will try that some time this week.
