Woo-hoo. After yesterday's post I thought I'd not do a second speed run midweek. Thanks for the advice!! So, I thought I'd have a 30 minute run and decided at the last minute to give Stepping Stones a second chance. Result? One of the best runs I've had since graduating. Not manic and racing for the fastest pace or furthest distance but getting the beat. And I got it. I couldn't believe my listening had got so tuned in today. Even the 150 beats per minute was possible without too much effort. Lots of patience helped. It made me think again about this podcast too. Perhaps I need to slow the beats to focus on making the run more evenly paced and ultimately faster in the long term. Stamina on Sunday again? There could be the makings of a 3-different-runs-a-week programme till I decide I really am ready for those two 'next steps' of parkrun and B210k.
Once again on the technical side: GPS all over the place on the SIM-less HTC Desire running Endomondo, but happy to try Runkeeper or Garmin Fit. I want to find out if the fact that I'm trying to use my old phone as a run tracker without a SIM card is the problem or I'm just unlucky. (Or do I need a different device!!)
Thanks for reading and keep on running!!
