I have not been running very regularly over this extended winter of ours - yes, call me weak for preferring to stay in the warm rather than have my lungs frozen! But I have maintained the 30mins of running. Now sunshine over the last week so I am proud to say I have done the three 5k+ podcasts. I found Stepping Stones quite difficult because the pace was much slower than my natural running pace, but I'm guessing if I want to increase my distance/time running this may be the way to go? Stamina was harder and I had to push myself, but managed to complete :-). This morning did Speed - thought it was going to be easy - the podcast time is, I think 26mins. How wrong was I, the interval training was tough but again pushed myself - I had to to save face as I almost sprinted past the Forces Fit group that was also out in the park doing their lunges, press-ups etc!
The moral to this story - if you have been a bit sluggish over the winter, don't lose faith in your running abilities, build back up to the full 30mins and then try these 3 podcasts - really good to have a new challenge and new music after doing week 9 repeatedly since I graduated in November (albeit only once a week!).
