Hi everyone, so I followed your advice and just completed Stepping Stones for the first time....
Boy, was that tough. Its funny how you get settled into your normal 30+ min run and although its tiring is nothing like as hard as this timed pace run was !
I found it quite tough going and really remembered what it feels like for everyone not yet graduated and taking on new harder runs.
Of course it starts off faster than i do so was gasping after 2 1/2 mins. Got through that and my calves started to hurt. Finally settled into more relaxed breathing at half way through. I enjoyed the last quick five mins then it was all over. I feel fantastic.
Much more of a workout than i expected (not sure you made that clear to me yesterday.... ) but exactly what I needed.
Speed was 8.58 avg 30 mins run 4.4k.
Job done.. can't wait to do it again Thursday.
I know i should probably post this on the c25k+ site but feel like i know you all and you will understand how excited i am.
Didn't even mind the music too much, i was busy counting. Lol 🏃
