I did the stepping stones again today but I really can't get the beat. It seems stupidly slow to me. Is it because, being a very slow jogger, I am doing short but fast steps? The 150 and 155 bpm that Laura wants me to do are really hard. I feel like I'm trying to run in s-l-o-w-m-o-t-i-o-n and actually get on better with the faster beat at the end of the run. I was so confused by all this today I had to keep stopping and walking and ended up with no rhythm at all.
I realise I need to lengthen my stride but I have a sneaking suspicion that the podcasts are designed for those with loong legs who can already almost do 5k in the 30 minutes.
Oh dear that was a bit of a negative rant wasn't it? On a more positive note, I intend to keep trying these sessions and hopefully master them one day and I am actually enjoying the exercise and enjoying having more energy generally.
