So I mentioned my awesome Doctor?
I had mentioned to him that since I finished c25k I feel like I have no where to go. I'm trying to increase speed, but feel stuck. He suggested going through c25k again but this time focus on speed during the running portions rather than just living through it like I did the first time.
I'll admit I was skeptical, but he has never steered me wrong before. The first thing I got from it was a sense of accomplishment. It took me sometimes a month at a time to get through one week way back when. I also remember having to walk/ fast walk week one the first time. I was just so out of shape.
So I fully committed. I thought, "When it comes run time, I am going to RUN."
Holy heck people! I can't feel my butt. Maybe it finally fell off. It's about time.
Anyway I thought some of you who also finish c25k and feel a little lost would find this helpful. So I thought I'd share.

    I am almost through my c25k and did not know this. You are correct in saying the first time through I am just trying to live through it. My time is not great but I am "doing it". I will try that when I am done. Thank you for the advise, did not think of that at all!!!

    Hmm that's a good idea!
I just downloaded a 5K-10K podcast, but if that turns out too hard I'm definitely going back and trying your idea : )

    I love it! Get back to the basics... Your DR is wise.
