Still plugging away at the Stepping Stones podcast at the moment with improved success with keeping to the beat. It is interesting to see how my times have slowed (when the Endomondo app works properly!) since doing this. All within the 5k in 30 mins frame, I hasten to add. I am not complaining, just noting it. I am feeling the enormous benefits of 3x 30 mins running per week and I have still got my plan of B210k and my local Parkrun for the new year. Proud to say that this tough Autumn term has not put me off the running, even with a Quality Review from the friendly Challenge Partners and a less friendly visit from Ofsted.
I am glad I went back to the 30 minute runs as Speed was good but only got me moving for 16 mins and I felt my stamina might slip otherwise. And Stamina (the podcast) was as gruelling as one of you guys said. Two Sundays of those was enough till I felt (feel?) I have the regular beat thing sorted. It may be that I try again but I will probably go for B210k before I do so, then see what I feel. And now, end of term festivities and a trip over the border to visit my parents means certain disruption, or at least re-jigging my runs. But it is the best thing and my message as ever to all is, 'Keep running'.
