I've decided the c25k program is not for me. So I'm binning it off.
That's not to say I'm giving up on my goal to run the park run in a respectable time. That's still one of my goals and I'm still going to train for it. But c25k is not the plan for me.
I'm not knocking it. It's clearly very motivational for many, and that's a good thing. But I figured I train hard enough at martial arts, and as much as I enjoy that, I think that's enough training. The addition of running into my regime needs to be a bit less goal oriented and a bit more leisure that just happens to support my goals. To that end, for now, I'm sticking with see how far I can get in 30 minutes, without it feeling like work. I'm up to 2.1 miles at the moment.
