Thanks for pointing me towards the C25K. I found the podcast and gave it a go on Tuesday. I think I was doing well and weirdly enjoying it but then about 3/4 of the way through I dropped my phone! And the battery fell out and I lost my place in the training so it got truncated. I think I was going for just over 14 minutes, not running all the time but when I was it felt good. Any suggestions how to keep devices safe and not jiggling about? I might try it again on Saturday.
The other problem I think I encountered was mainly a result of probably not eating enough. I went for my jog in the early evening on Tuesday the day after my fast day and on Tuesday I'm on the move all day because I have to travel between sites so I just had a sandwich and a banana for lunch and after my run I didn't feel like eating too much and wanted to go to bed quite early so I didn't have any carbs so the following day (Wednesday) when I was at work I felt very washed out till I had my first full evening meal since Sunday. I think I need to get the timing right of food/exercise/rest.
Try a banana about half an hour before running.
It's been snowing quite hard here overnight, and the roads and paths are really slushy at the minute - I dont know what will happen to the parkrun tomorrow, might have to run in welly boots!
