Graduated a couple of weeks ago. Been carrying on with 30 minute runs which with warm up and cool down is taking me to 40 minutes. I’m getting a bit bored now though and even though I’m fine running for that length of time I’m finding I don’t want to be spending as long a time on it. I have done the whole programme on a treadmill so decided to try running outdoors last week - never again!! I hated it. I thought it would help with boredom but I found it too hard. I couldn’t get my pace right and I found the surface too hard to run on. I much prefer the treadmill so will stick with that.
Anyway my main point of posting was to ask what you thought of my plan to not run for quite so long. How will it affect the fitness levels I now have. I thought I would do maybe a 15 minute run twice during the week and a longer run at the weekend. I thought I would be more likely to stick to it long term with this structure but do you think it will be enough?
