This time I tried really hard to slow down to the pace Laura suggests, at least for the first part of the run, and I struggled. Am not sure if there is a point in me trying to run slower than I am comfortable and capable of.
When we upped the pace for the first time I found it easier but it was still that little bit slower than I am capable of. It's only when we increase to the final pace in the last 5 minutes that I hit my natural pace and those last 5 minutes are the best part of my run.
Not sure what to do; stick with stepping stone, do my own thing or look at one of the other programs. I do like the music and fewer time checks which seem to make the run go more quickly, but I am not sure I am getting anything from stepping stone. Will try at least one more time but doesnt feel like its right for me.
What do others think?
