So I did the stepping stones podcast for the first time this morning - last few weeks after graduating have increased my running time but still not at 5km- and decided had to be brave and up my pace.
Well the walk was faster than usual for a start!! And then we began at 150bpm - that was my usual flat out pace!! When Laura increased this to 155bpm I thought I was going to throw up - and I havent felt that way since week4!!!
Anyway 20 minutes in the rain really started to come down hard - that was all I needed to head for home - so didnt do my full 30 minutes - but boy was I faster today!!!
Feeling very pleased that I did keep up for most of it - and that there is light at the end of the tunnel, I just need to keep getting off that couch (or out of my bed given it was a 6am start!!)
Anyway have just read @vixiej blog - and apparently 160bpm was too slow!! But they did talk about thinking about giving Laura a slap when she gets too "motivational". Whilst being a compete pacifist usually - I am going to pinch that idea to keep me going that bitl onger on Thursday and I have to say I would recommend the podcast as having Laura going "1,2,3,4" in your ear really does help - honest
Happy running all - and hope no-one too flooded here in the UK!
