It's just over a year since I started the 9 week Couch to 5K and I've nearly finished, 1 more week to go I'm now running at Coombe Abbey near Coventry. Does anyone else here go there? I've been finding the longer runs a bit monotonous. What do you think about when running? Also a runner friend has told me my cadence is too slow. I'm reluctant to speed up at the moment in case I'm worn out before completing the time. Current time per km averages 7m 30s I had planned to get to the 30 minutes running then start to aim for a 7 minute km.
