Week 1 again!?!?

Today I made an amazing discovery! In an effort to increase my speed. I did week 1 again, but instead of my normal shuffle I did an almost proper run for the 1 minute stints, briskly walked the 90 seconds and slow jogged the last 5minutes. Strava informed me I had achieved PBs on 1k, 1 mile and 2 mile! I've decided to do this twice a week until I can slow jog the 90seconds walk, then move on to week 2. For my third run of the week I'll either do park run or the 30 minutes stepping stones. Sounds like a plan? This feels like a real achievement towards my quest to do park run in 35 minutes. 🙌

  • I've tried doing week 1 in the same kind of way. It felt a bit odd to start with. I'm going to give it another go now I've finished a 10km training plan I was doing. Have you tried the speed podcast in the 5k + series? It's pretty tough but it does get your pace up

  • No, Sharon. I'm easily daunted! Week 1 again was fun although the number of runs seemed to go on for ever!

  • I like all the 5k+ series but Laura is in 'stern' mode! The speed one is short - thankfully. I find I have to be in the right mood to gave a go at interval type running. If I'm a bit off my game for some reason then interval training has to wait for another day & it's back to the usual plod☺☺

  • What a clever way of using the podcasts again! Will make a mental note.
