The other side meaning graduation - I haven't died! Although from my silence of late on the forum you'd be forgivedfor thinking I had!
After my 2 weeks off (I have a doctor's note, honest miss!) I have returned to the trial podcast where a bloke feigns to be Laura. Before I fell ill, I found it invigorating and not too hard. After a fortnight off, it seems much harder! I blame the heat.
Yesterday, I ran after work (I normally run at quarter to 7 in the morning) and man alive did I overheat. I was hydrated to the hilt and even so, 20 mins in I felt my temperature rise. By 25 mins I was hotter than I've ever felt before so I walked the last 5 mins : /
It's great to see lots of new people on the forum since I was last on! I am still quite evangelical about C25K but my 'converts' have yet to sign up ...
I must say, I miss the structure of C25K. I have yet to commit seriously to a new schedule/plan. I don't know whether to aim for more speed, longer runs, or an event like 10K. The beauty of C25K was that I didn't need to think, just follow instructions!
I don't want to dither about what to aim for next! I have learned over the past months that a structured programme works for me, and I need a goal to work towards. The big fear is, if I don't commit to a new goal soon, I might lose enthusiasm and let the running fall by the wayside ... !!!
So, off I go to buy a running magazine for inspiration ... I'll let you know what schedule emerges!
