I finished C25K on Monday and went for my first post-graduation run yesterday. I wasn't prepared and hadn't downloaded any of the new podcasts so I decided I needed a fun, no-pressure run. I was hoping I'd enjoy it but I really didn't. I only had Coldplay on my phone which wasn't the most uplifting music to run to. Endomondo didn't give me a shout-out at the usual spot where I complete a mile, despite me going a convoluted route, so I'm pretty sure the GPS wasn't working properly. I gave up after that so only managed about 15 minutes then a couple of half-hearted 5 minute runs after that.
It's been a couple of weeks since I enjoyed a run, running for 30 minutes made me feel light-headed and a bit sick rather than elated. I want to run 30 minutes comfortably before setting a new challenge but I can't do it without Laura and I'm fed up of the week 9 podcast. I'm scared to try the new podcasts because everyone says they're so hard.
I know I'm fitter because I can run for 30 minutes now but I don't feel fit, I'm still really slow and it's still a huge struggle. I'm almost tempted to start C25K all over again just to enjoy the day to day progress. I really don't want to undo all the good work I've done so far.
