So yesterday I wasn't even going to go for a run - it looked like rain, I'd cycled to work - then suddenly I wanted to - yes wanted to - that's right!?
So in my old trainers I use for cycling and my padded wobble bottom cycle capris I chugged out of work by foot. I randomly chose week 4 podcast - and this time decided to just run fast and then walk the gaps.. this was more successful (but not easier) than the attempt with the week 1 podcast where I jogged between intervals of running..
And the result was..... my average speed for the "run" was EXACTLY the same - so my slow jog/ faster run on Tuesday and my even faster run/ walk on Thursday averaged the same speed...!!
This means I "ran" faster yesterday! Yay!
So I've done two short/ fartlek style runs this week - and then I hope to do a 33minute run tomorrow to ensure I maintain the stamina... the sad thing is I am genuinely excited about it!
Very interested to hear what everyone else is doing post graduation (for the record I am still NOWHERE near 5k!)
