Hi - have completed the 5K target a little while ago I've been struggling to find a podcast like Laura's to coach through my next target. I've decided I'd rather work at increasing speed than distance. Looked around, not found any aids that I like. Then had brainwave - go back to Laura's week 1, and instead of walking, go at my jog pace, and when she says to run, just speed up. So it was 60 seconds of jogging, followed by minute of running faster, then slow down to a jog again and so on. Just tried that this morning, and did fairly well, but realise I have to readjust to learn to breathe better at the faster pace. So I'm going to experiment with this process until I find a combination that suits me as a starting point, and then go right through the programme again in this way. Has anyone else tried anything like this?
