Stepping stone

After graduating for C25k and doing a couple of 30 minute runs I decided to move on to 5k+. I had read various reports about stepping stone so I was a bit dubious about trying this. But I have to say that I did enjoy it. It did seem a little slow to start but I soon settled into the rhythm. I found the 155bpm a good pace, which whilst I have done that speed before it hasn't been for that length of time so I was chuffed that I kept it up and got up a big hill as well. Then the same with the 160bpm. It felt good to be doing more than plodding but I could really feel it by the end. So my advice to any graduate would be, give it go, at least once, you may be surprised.

  • How are you recording your heart rate?

  • I don't. It's beat per minute to music.

  • Well done.😊Stepping stones is a fave of mine. It teaches you to start really slow, so the toxic ten has less effect and to take short light steps..

    You gotta enjoy a bit of Laura coaching as well😄

  • Cool thanks for your reply. I'll give it a try in a couple of weeks.
