Couch-to-5K W7D1

Monday, November 30, 2009

I tried W7D1 outside in the cold yesterday. It wasn't super cold (45), but I couldn't do it. I had to walk twice to catch my breath and even then I only made it 20 minutes. And my pace is incredibly slow. I'll be using the treadmill for my next 2 runs since it will only be in the 30's this week in the early morning. I know I'll be able to do it on the treadmill and at a faster pace than outside. Maybe I'll just have to finish C25K on the treadmill and then I'll work on pushing myself to go faster before I try it outside again.

    I thought, after getting through week 5 and 6, that week 7 would be a piece of cake. I was wrong!
    I'll be repeating week 7 this week. Much like you I just couldn't keep my breath/feel the pace for days 2+3. They tell me it I'll just go out tomorrow and try week 7 again!

    Good for you that you're setting your goal and continuing to work through the obstacles!! Way to go!! --The hills and my pace have me so incredibly discouraged with my "running form," but I'm pretty determined to get there!!

    Go for it!! emoticon

    It is remarkable the difference cold weather and being outdoors makes, isn't it? I will do W7D1 tomorrow. I think I'm just going to do the treadmill, like you, and move outdoors once I've gotten my speed up a little on the treadmill.
