As you know, a number of us here have recently started on our B210K running adventure. What is great about it is that we are all working at different ways to either run continually for 60 mins or run for 10K or manage the two together So it is flexible to suit each runner and we can all encourage each other along the way - win, win!! For anyone thinking of starting, please join the gang, you are most welcome!
My plan is to do this over 9 weeks as opposed to some 6 week plans purely because I want to ease into it at a gentler pace so the podcast I am using finished off W1 with a continuous 30 min run, rather than another 4 x 10 mins, which I did last weekend. I then actually repeated it again on Tuesday as my hubby wanted to join me and as it was his first run since recovering from a bad cough and an injured foot we just took it at a gentle pace.
Tonight I started W2 which is based on 12 min rather than 15 min runs:
R1 - 3 x 12 mins with 2 mins walking intervals
R2 - 3 x 12 mins with 1 min walking
R3 - 4 x 12 mins with 2 mins walking
It was very cold out but so invigorating; I loved it I have also come to the conclusion that evening runs are really suiting me as I perform so much better. Strange, because when on C25K it was the evenings that were always harder…..I wonder why it has changed?
So the next run is W2R2 but who knows when that is going to be given the snow being forecast for tomorrow and possibly Saturday Maybe I will give my new Yaktrax a go – that will be an experience!
Safe running everyone!
