10k novice, on cross training days is a 45 min brisk walk with the missus adequate?I keep meaning to give audio books a go when running but I tend to zone out a lot which is OK with music but I'm not sure would work with podcasts and audio books.
Which program did you go for Noon? The 10K one?
Have you downloaded the 100 press ups app yet? thats based on 3 lots per week, I bet you'll be doing 10 inside a week.Walking is so much fun, I live in an area with loads of foreigners, so there are loads of shops and restaurants with foreign signs/lettering. So I take pictures when I'm out and ask people from school to translate. It got a bit scary when I took pictures of some Chinese place, the guy behind the counter came out so I had to run away in case he was a bellend.
Also, I'm on about seven miles a day on the treadmill, slowly moving up in speed. The fastest speed on my treadmill is 10mph, hopefully in a few months I'll be able to do a full hour run on it. I've made so much progress, I can still remember when I'd struggle just do a mile at about 8min 34 seconds. Weight was down to 149.6lbs this morning, I'm hoping just get down as low as possible to offset the damage that will be done when I'm in Madrid.
I'm trying to do press-ups a few times a day, I don't think that I've got to ten yet, but I'm working on it.
