The last 3 weeks of work have been BRUTAL! I have been out on the road traveling for virtually the whole time and talk about becoming inconsistent! I was on the East coast for each trip so waking up early to work out wasn't in the cards since I was already getting up at 4:00am my time to just get to the training sites on time. After a 12 hour day of training and walking the floor to help students, the last thing I wanted to do was hit the gym. I did go a few times but not as much as I should have. In my quest to run a 5K I did re-run week 3 and surprisingly it wasn't all that hard! I have decided that since week 4 has been a huge stumbling block for me I am going to run what I am naming week 3.5! I am going to run the normal 3 and 5 minute times, but have longer recovery time. So instead of 1.5 minutes and 3 minutes of recovery I am going to bump it up to 3 and 5 minutes so that when I run the real week 4 with the shorter recovery times it won't be so hard. It seems like a good plan, and a way to move forward while I defeat my week 4 problem!

After 3 failed attempts at C25k Week 4 Day 1..... I DID IT!!!
I was having some issues with my legs cramping up as I was trying to get through my first 5 minute jog of the series, but last night, I pushed through and did it! I felt so accomplished that after so many failed attempts, I could get through it. I want to thank all of the wonderful sparkpeople on the "Fat Runners Club" board for their help. I asked if anyone could help me through this and was directed to a SP FAQ under fitness and followed what the article told me. It worked! Thanks again for ALL of your support, I couldn't do it (jog, lose weight, keep my sanity) without each and every one of you!
