I'm still here, jogging on. A couple of my post grad weeks were a bit unfocused, and I just ran 5k every time I went out. But it got to the point of tedium, and I realised I need to sense progression in my running to enjoy it properly.
So I hunted out a 10k app and I've started working on that. Trouble is, it feels like I'm going backwards with one 20 min 'steady' run day (push yourself a bit), one intervals day (easy does it, interspersed with heartthumpingly fast) and one longer run day (easy does it). I'm definitely a little faster, but I've yet to be convinced that the stamina is improving. The longer runs are still not up beyond 35 mins - and I was doing that and more before I started this 10k caper.
I guess I'll persevere, in the absence of any better plan. I confess I'm tempted to abandon the app and look for a different one, but all this chopping and changing is fraying my edges.
