Couch to 5K...I can do this!

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

I started the C25K program yesterday. It was a crazy day to start this, but, I just went for it! It was my daughters birthday and we spent 5 hours at the water park (climbing many stairs to the slides) and then I took my usual cycle class. I had my husband drop me off at the gym because I wanted to force myself to start this C25k program and walked / jogged home! I'm sore today, but, am proud of what I accomplished yesterday and am looking forward to today's walk/run.

I also started the 8 week battle yesterday, so, hopefully, this C25K program will also give me the needed boost for that challenge. Best of luck fellow warriors!
We can do it!!!

    Thanks for reminders about the importance of the "rest" days.
I'm looking forward to building up each week and becoming a runner!

    Yeah, you have to have a recovery day in between runs, because your recovery day is when your body rebuilds your muscles to make them stronger. It's a key part of training!

That said: Congrats on starting C25K! I think it's the best thing I've ever done for myself. I hope you love being a runner as much as I do!

    I have no doubt that you can do it. You are beeming with courage. Don't overdo it though. C25K does not recommend going 2 days in a row. You don't want to injur yourself. Your joints etc. have to get used to the impact of running. Let us know how you are progressing.

I love being a runner. It makes me feel at the top of my game. I hope you will love it too!
