So I tried the Speed podcast on Sunday and quite liked it. I got it much more than my single attempt at the Stepping Stones one. With that one I really couldn't seem to get the beat. With Speed it seemed much easier. In reality I think I did get it at the start and at the finish. The faster bits (or intervals) seemed easier to follow but were somewhat harder to keep up with on the uphill stretches of my route. I've now done this three times and the numbers are pretty static. I'm doing about 3k in about the 16 minutes of the podcast so it's not bad from that point of view. I get the faster bits and the slower bits but am not really sure if I am managing the beat as well as I should.
I know that some others who have tried Speed have felt cheated that it's a shorter run but I feel I've done a proper workout after each one. And for that reason I may well push on with this podcast for a while longer possibly mixing in with the Stamina one and even Stepping Stones. I still have B210k in my sights but I am currently getting focused on improving some of the things I see I need to get better. So, I'm sticking with Laura for a bit longer!
