I am on the final week of the B210K programme I am following from Runningbug - I think I have managed to run through my fears about lasting the duration of a 10K route as week by week my stamina and distance improved. There's about 5 weeks before my 10K race end September - for those of you who have done parts or all of C25K+ what would you suggest I move on to next week- Stepping Stones, Stamina, Speed?
Ideally I would like to retain the format of the programme I am doing at the moment: two timed runs (45 mins per run this week) and then a long run on the weekend. Just rereading what I have written I think I would like to replace the timed runs with something from C25K+.
I am certainly not fast, and don't think I will ever be - running has been all about improving my health and breathing and therefore my asthma and in every long run there has been a point where I know I am running low on capacity and I slow down and concentrate on breathing till I have a good rhythm going again. BBUUTTT I also don't want to be the last one in on race day! I have put myself into the 1 hour 30 minutes starting gate, but would be so utterly chuffed if I can shave 15 minutes off that time.
