After being a little disappointed with my first post-grad run, I decided to start a Bridge to 10k plan, with the first run today.
It was my first run without any music (left the iPod at home) and I set my Garmin to a simple stopwatch, to run 4 x 10 minutes, with 1 minute walk in between. I found it the perfect follow on from c25k, quite testing, but doable without pushing too hard.
I was chuffed when I finished and allowed myself to check the stats and found that in the 43 minutes, I'd covered 6.2km (averaging 6.57 per km), which gave me a longer run and better pace than I'd managed throughout the c25k course. And, I'd run for a total of 40 out of 43 minutes, so all good steps in the right direction.
And once again proving, that even after graduating, the support on here is invaluable after a bad run.
