'Stepping Stones' Couch to 5K +

First of all I'd like to thank everyone for the comments on my previous post. You guys are so encouraging.

I downloaded the podcast for the Couch to 5K + and used 'stepping stones'. My pace increased and I had a really good run. I think I'm going to do this for a few weeks. I really felt like I was running rather than jogging. Laura is really good at keeping one on track.

I've just started the plus podcasts and have found them to be great. I'm a bit gutted I didn't choose Laura for the couch to 5k coach as I'm absolutely loving her on these! Im also finding running to the beats per minute a real help. Have you tried the speed and stamina one? I was dreading the stamina one and thought I would not be able to do it but I managed it the other night, again by concentrating to the beats per minute I managed to get into my stride quicker and it was over before I knew it! Good luck with your post graduation runs just keep thinking about how far you've came from week !! 👌

Not tried the others yet. The stepping stones sounded the milder of the three 😁. Will get round to doing them, but I want to enjoy this one for niw.

Yep the stepping stones is the milder, then the speed then the stamina in my opinion. Enjoy the stepping stone one and then you'll surprise yourself with the other 2 :-) Good luck!!

Great to hear they are good, I'm consolidating on 30mins and the odd 5+k at the moment but definitely going to give these a go in a few weeks time. Something new to look forward to.👍
