Today was the second consolidation run. I downloaded the C25K + podcasts and used the stepping stone podcast. I kind of listened (skipping past the sections where Laura was not saying anything) to the podcast last evening so was aware of what to expect.
Things didn’t started well. I forgot to start my Fitbit run tracking at the start of my run, started it almost 4 mins in the run. I was surprised that the auto run detect feature didn’t kicked in. I’ll try find out why it didn’t.
The 150 bpm (for 15 mins) 160 bpm (10 mins) 165 bpm (for last 5 mins) routine proved too challenging. I had to walk for about 3 mins during the run. However on the positive side the avg speed improved since graduating.
So next stop is to consistently (at least 3 consecutive runs) run as per the 150-160-165 routine.
Anyone else used stepping stone podcast and found it challenging and what changes you made to achieve the 150-160-165?
