Well I got there. My first run in the rain! I can see now that I will finish the programme, and I am truly surprised and grateful to the programme and everyone here for that. My stamina/endurance are not great and my speed is well short of getting 5 k in 30 minutes. Reading the posts on here I know I am not alone in that. After 28 minutes I'm relieved to stop, so there's plenty of scope for improving on all fronts. I've seen the follow on programmes & wondered if I could get feedback from those who have gone on to do b210k, stepping stone (speed or stamina) programmes. I'd also be interested in those that have gone back to week 1 & done run/jog intervals rather than jog/ walk? Of course everyone is different, but it would be interesting to know how you felt about the next phase, did it work for you? Any thoughts much appreciated!
