I really feel out of the loop. I have continued with the Speed podcasts midweek and now done a second Stamina run on the Sunday. But I am still finding the beat hard to get at times. Still I have been enjoying the workout I get from both. The Speed is short and tough, the Stamina is, as you'd expect, a real slog with a faster burst at the end. I usually feel I've done a proper workout with the Speednrun, even if it only adds up to 16 minutes total running. The Stamina is still a push and the fast finish hasn't happened yet!! I felt it was a bit of a struggle once I got to that last five minutes so I knew it wasn't going to be easy to pick up the speed after working a fast-ish, solid 30 minutes after the initial moderate 10 minutes. I said to myself that I felt the need to get back to doing some longer runs midweek, so I'm thinking of a 30 minute run tomorrow, but which podcast and what route? Around 19 hours to make my mind up, so I'd better get some sleep first.
Big problem is a technical one. I got a new phone and so have tried to get my HTC Desire to run Endomondo to track my runs and pick up the wireless network indoors. It hhas done a few crazy things since then. I got my third kilometre in 4 minutes 20-something seconds (not) on a Speed run. I did my first k in over 13 minutes (really) on a Stamina run and last night it missed the first five minutes or so. Totally messing up my logged runs. I know I can probably do a manual edit but I'd rather the thing just worked. I will ask in the questions section to see if I can find someone who knows about these things.
Anyway, I'm back. Hope the running is going well for you too. Keep it up. (Oh, and despite the weather, I have still only had one wet run since I started the programme 15 weeks ago.
