B210K- first run

Well I startedB210K this evening and I must admit I was a bit apprehensive. I graduated on Friday and I haven’t run since. I was worried that I was going to get lazy. Decided to go out this evening just as a rain shower was finishing. The music is just as bad as the c25k podcasts. I found the voice in my ear a bit more abrupt but then I figured I had to be weaned off Laura at some point. I found the pace a bit faster but I tried to maintain a pace that I was comfortable with. The end of the first10 minutes crept up on me but the 1 minute rest seemed to be about 10 seconds but I plodded on regardless. As per usual I hadn’t planned my run very well and in my final 10 minutes I went around the block past my house so that I was further away from home but the end of the fourth running phase so as I felt able to continue, I continued to run and did 15 minutes for the fourth running block followed by the 5 minute cool down. Five minutes into the fourth block of running, the heavens opened and I got soaked through but it felt great. I was like a big kid out in the rain. I measured my distance afterwards using geodistance and apparently I ran 6.8k! I can’t believe I have added almost two k since graduating last Friday. Bring on run 2!

Yay well done you. I love running in the rain. Like you say it brings out the big kid in us ;-)

Well done. Do keep us updated as to how you are getting on. I'm thinking of graduating upto the B210k when I finished C25K. Note I said WHEN!
