I ran the first of week 9's runs today and it was great, I felt really capable. There may be days when it is harder but it was a glimpse into the possibilities..!
I've downloaded the 5k+ podcasts and I intend to stay around the 30min mark (currently I think that's about 4k) until the new year to check my knees are really OK with this, and to gain confidence- I might even get my speed up a little but no pressure.
But then I'd like to aim for 10k (by which I mean an hour or so) and I was wondering if there were any recommendations for podcasts or apps to take me there that won't drive me batty... It's a flaw of mine that I find it very irritating to be encouraged by an app with an American accent and I will miss Laura.
