C25K revisited

Friday, May 23, 2008

Got on the scale this am and it wasn't good. I am back up to 188.6! This is just totally unacceptable. I have worked too hard. I really have to get myself back on track! So, I am restarting's beginner running program again.

Beginning stats (from Tanita Body Comp Monitor)
188.6 pounds
38.9% body fat
43.2% water
8 rating of visceral fat
108.2 lbs muscle
5.8 lbs bone
2462 BMR
Will get major measurements in the AM.

The first run (treadmill 2% incline):
5 min warmup walk at 3.6 mph (off the treadmill to stretch)
60/90 sec intervals at 5/3.7-4 mph
total time for 3.1 miles: 44:22

I intend to stick to the schedule, the only changes being that I will do the distance rather than the time and I will do it everyother day to cut down on the time for completion. (shooting for a graduation day of July 14th) I will adhere to their recommendations for the intervals, I will just do it so that I complete the 3.1 mile distance each time.

  I've been up again this week too... it happens to all of us. But we can get back on track! Remember, Success consists of getting up once oftener than you fall! (Mary Engelbreit) You haven't given up, so you will make it! Blessings!
