Hi all -
just wanted to report in my first post-graduation run.
After spending an hour trying to get the C25K+ podcasts to download to my ipod (finally achieved but I'm no clearer about what went wrong/right and at which point- I was just so relieved to be able to go out!) I set out tonight and chose to do the stepping stones podcast.
It was good to hear Laura, good to have her tell me that I'm a 'real runner' now - and oh so lucky it would seem - because if she hadn't carefully made me feel like a runner before I started then I'm sure I'd have given up before the end! I'm slow, I know that, but after 9 weeks of Laura telling me to go a bit slower if necessary because getting to the end of the time/distance is the most important thing, it was a bit of a culture shock to have her telling me to hurry up! Especially as the fastest part of the run was on the hills on the second lap... Still, I did it (didn't manage to keep the pace for all of the last 5 minutes but equally didn't given up and stop either) and feel pretty good about it Think I'm going to stick to this podcast this week, having listened to the intros of the others in the series Happy running all
