Stepping Stones Birthday run with Laura

As it's my 73rd birthday today and I have reran all the C25K runs two times I thought I would start the Stepping Stones Podcast runs today. The run went fine, 150 steps a minute felt quite slow at first but by the last 5 minutes when it was 160 steps a minute I felt that was more my natural pace. I reckon I covered around 4K this morning, the next run sometime next week will be NHS Couch to 5K+ Speed.

Happy Birthday to you.. Happy Birthday to you...πŸŽ‚πŸŽΆπŸŽΆπŸŽΆ

Well done...like many before you..you have found out what the Plus podcasts are all about...the disciplines in our running.

They teach up new skills...enable us to find our happy pace..teach us the nuances of our running.

Many try them too soon..find them a waste of time, when in fact, they are quite the opposite.

Many if us use and still use them...either on their own or within runs..I use Speed,sometimes, when I am short of time and Stamina within a longer run...Speed too at the end of a run:) I love both of them:)

Enjoy,as you move on.

Have a super,super birthday and thank you for your continued support of myself and this wonderful forum.x

Thanks Floss for singing Happy Birthday to me, yes I agree with you, when I was doing the C25K program I kept rigidly to all the instructions there were, I had to do it from memory as I had not got the Smartphone I have now, so those Stepping Stone podcasts are really good, I thought this morning that the first 10 minutes of 150 steps a minute were a little slow but I kept to them, by the last 5 minutes where it's 160 steps a minute I was glad that I kept to the previous 25 minutes as the last 5 minutes were starting to get tiring, anyway, I am having a good birthday and next week I'll do the 5k speed ones with Laura.

Thank you TOF for your birthday wishes to me, Many Years, that's nice of you to say that, I wish you a sub 30 minute 5K at the Keswick Parkrun soon, I know that is your goal even if the time is 29.59, the weather this weekend is to be on the cool side, so a PB for you is on the cards.

Thank you for wishing me a happy birthday Dell-dot, 73 is only a number BUT you can't ignore it, it's not 23 so I have to be careful when I run as I don't want to end up on the IC, there again, many 23-year-olds end up on the IC.
