Well, I finished W2D2 tonight! It was actually the best run yet.
The weather was warm but had a good breeze and where I do my walk/jogging is in our local park that has a beautiful trail through the woods. It was starting to get dark, so the breeze really felt good and I was able to really concentrate on running/walking and really enjoying the work out!
I'm MP3 player illiterate so even though I d/l the podcast onto it, I couldn't find it! but that's ok... I enjoyed the run anyway!!!
I will do W2D3 on Friday or Saturday and then....ta da start W3!!!
I was apprehensive about starting W2 of the C25k but I was pleasantly pleased! I thought it might be too hard but I actually felt better doing W2D1 than W1D3. I'm starting to think that I might really be able to finish this!!! I found my MP3 player so I think running with music is a lot more fun than without.
Hope this encourages others that it IS possible to do this and NOT keel over while doing it!!
Ok, I did it! I finished week #1! Wow today was tough, I really had to focus to keep on going but I got it all done! Jelly legs!
I haven't even looked ahead to see what Week 2 entails. I didn't want to get discouraged. 13 years ago I loved to jog. I ran just for the fun of it! I let going back to work full time and juggling my family and their activities interfere with my own health. It was just easier to run through the drive thru when one of the kids had a ball game or music event than to plan it out to eat healthy and take the time out to excercise. Then on the days where they didn't have an event I just came home and collapsed on the couch for the evening.
No more for that! Of course I will still take time out to relax and enjoy myself but I'm going to do that AFTER I do the important task... which is excercise and get myself healthy!
I finished W1D2 C25k tonight! Hubby went with me also! This seemed tougher tonight but I know I had a faster pace because we went around the circuit in our park 3 times where I only went around it 2 times the first day. I think having hubby there with me pushed my pace!
I am planning on doing D3 on Friday evening. I also walked 2 miles today which is an new uphill course I've started doing this week on my breaks at work. I'm really huffing and puffing when I get back and feel this is really giving me a better workout than walking on flat ground. Let's hope the scale agrees on Saturday!!!!
I'm hoping with my dh's encouragement and the encouragement on here that I follow through on this goal!
I started 2 new challenges today! I thought the two of them will work well together. One of my SP teams I am on, "Done Being the Fat Girl" is starting a new challege called "Spring into Summer (sis)" and I also joined the SP team "Couch to 5k".
I did my W1D1 C25k today and it was sooo cold! (42 degress out!) But at least the rain stopped while I was running/jogging. You wouldn't think 60 seconds of running at a time would be tough but this was sure tougher than I thought! I did feel really good after I was done!!
I am also going to continue doing the SP bootcamp videos and playing volleyball 2-3 nights a week.
