Early this Spring I tried to start running. I ran a few times with my DGD who is on the track team at her school and I decided to try a 5K. Well I enjoyed the running (actually jogging!), but I got IT Friction Band Syndrome and it took me 5 months to heal. I did walk a 5k that I had signed up for but abandoned the jogging. Well I have decided to try the C25K training program, not to run a 5 k , just to improved my fitness. I am on week 1 and have completed 2 days. I made sure to warm up for 5 minutes then stretch before I did the intervals. I really enjoyed myself. The first day I used my Timex Iron Man HRM watch and just watched the seconds to know when to walk or to jog, but last night I found and joined the c25k team and downloaded the Podrunner C25K interval music and used it for my workout this morning. It was great.
I don't know how far I will get. I'm going to take it slow and easy so I don't injure myself, but I had a ball.
