Tried the first of the 5k+ podcasts this am - picked stepping stones as speed sounded just that bit too scary. And realised the cross training I need to do for this is dancing - I just don't do enough of it anymore , apart from in my kitchen. So the challenge of locking onto that beat - wow I felt like I was suddenly being asked to do a fred astaire and run at the same time! 1 2 3 4 1 2 oops where's it gone 7 er 3 er 1234
Has anyone else found it this tricky?
I only managed it by taking baby steps - so by my milestones of lamposts, street corners, park benches I knew I was going a bit more slowly than usual in the first bit. Next time I'll try to be braver and take slightly longer strides. At least I had something in the tank for that last five minutes and gave it some welly. But when i mapped it the final run was shorter than my last week 9 run!
It's going to be a push to get faster
