Morning fellow runites!
Day off today, so I thought I'd try and beat the heat and get out early, which on a day off, would be about 9am for me! I was awake much earlier, but, you know, the bed was sooooo comfy.
Nothing much exciting to report, except that I did another 5k, using the C25K+ Stepping Stone podcast as a basis, and keeping going to 5k at the end. In short, it was fine, I had no issues, in my quest for 5k I got past the mill, a picture of which I will share shortly! Goyt Mill, Marple for anyone from this neck of the woods. It's a bit odd still running to the warmdown music, but whatever!! So all good really, and I was happy that I kept going with no problems.
It does annoy me that I'm still not really breaking the 35 minute barrier for 5k, so I was wondering how to proceed. What I feel I should probably do is repeat this podcast for a 3rd time, and then move on to stamina perhaps, and finish with the speed one, but I'm impatient! Is that the way to do it?
TBH I never really thought I'd get this far. Never thought I'd run for 50m let alone 5000m. Advice greatfully received.
Oh - and the reason I'd like to get down to 30 minutes for a 5k, not because it's necessary, but because it's something I'd like to do, but I want it to come naturally, if you know what I mean. Am I making sense?!
