Went out for W7R3 today, with a slightly wonky ankle which however felt much better in my running shoes. I started out fully prepared not to finish the 25 mins, but to my surprise I not only lasted the course but ran just a wee bit further than the last 3 runs. The reason def wasn't that me and my ankle were full of the joys - but I did have a brand-new playlist full of songs I've never run to before. So maybe the beat was faster, I dunno.
Which started me thinking - does anyone know if the podcast music is cunningly 'graded' to increase our speed as we jog through the weeks? If so, it might be better to stick to Laura in spite of the music - we'd get to 5K quicker. At the moment I'm nowhere near it, I did about 3.5km in my 25 mins plus one and a bit on the before/after walks. I know I can speed up after finishing the programme, but still - any ideas anyone?
