I've given up waiting for 'the right time' to start running again after my break and just decided to go for it. Funny how we can overcomplicate things :-).
Speaking of overcomplicating things, I've decided to start the c25k program with the following goals:
- cadence of at least 170 (I naturally plod at ~140-150)
- pace of at least 6min/K (so a 5K should take 30 minutes)
- at least two runs a week but preferably three
In addition I am also going to resume my 'long, slow but very therapeutic 5K in the park' as a good fat burner. There are no goals with this run other than to make sure it is in the aerobic zone (which based on my current heart rate might mean sleeping through it!). If I need to walk parts to stay in the zone then so be it.
And yeah, this is what I consider fun - geek all the things :-)!
Great to be back rocking the lycra! (and apologies).
