As the Beatles once sang, "o bla di o bla da life goes on,
so here's the thing .
Wk9 run 2 (last Monday) done. Big tick.
Today wk 9 run 3 done and dusted.
All finished, out of the way and just waiting for the powers that be to alter my status to "graduated" (ta very much any moderators reading this).
So a bit of query now .
Advice wanted from anyone who has gone on before.
Do you think I should do the c25k+ stepping stones/stamina/speed thing for a couple of weeks or just jump into the 10k thing.
I feel a real transformation since starting this program.
I have always been big weighting in at around 19 stone for donkeys years but quite fit with it (big belly but 30 years of martial arts training).
I managed to get down to 17.5 stone before starting this in January and now I am at just over 17 stone.
I am quite surprised that I have not lost more weight considering the amount of effort involved in running but in fairness several people over the last 3 weeks have all commented on how much weight I've lost so it may just be that I'm changing shape rather than shifting fat.
Funny because I have noticed a difference in the shirts that I normally wear in that there appears to be a flatter belly than before with much less overhang but perhaps I'm expecting a bit too much , after all it's only been 9 weeks and 3 have been proper running weeks.
Anyhow I digress, so If anybody has any advice I'm all ears.
I read a post back last week from big andy (I think) who said he had started a 10k program.
I've downloaded the zenlabs c210k app but there's no music in it.
I also downloaded a dj steveboy/jenny hadfield American app but this has loads of music downloads for runners but it beeps when you are supposed to run or walk.
To be honest I find it easier to listen to somebody and then have the music as in c25k (god I miss Laura).
The other thing is , where's the c210k blog/forum/chatty thing.
Who am I going to post to now my 5ks done and dusted.
