Great day to start week 2 of C25k!

Sunday, March 21, 2010

I was looking at our weather forecast for the week ahead and decided that today was the day to begin Week 2 of my C25K program!! It was definitely a step up from last week, but I felt really good throughout the whole run/walk. The 90 second runs went by faster than I thought they would and before I knew it, I was done the podcast. I also liked Podrunner's week 2 music better than week 1. Not sure if the pace was better for me, or I was not so focused on matching my steps to the beat of the music. I have to keep stopping myself from looking too far ahead of myself. I continuously am thinking about how the current run feels pretty good, but how will I feel next week when I have to do 3 mins of running intervals or even way beyond that... will I be able to run a 5k by the end of this?? I have to keep reminding myself to just look at this week's demands and no further. Regardless, it felt great today and I'm so pleased with myself!!
To top it off, I just spotted a male and female cardinal and a bluejay out my window in my back yard. The day just keeps getting better!!! :-)

    This was the first day of Week 3 for me and I just did the same thing, looking ahead to Week 4 thinking, "Ugh! How will I run 5 min by next week?" But I pushed that out of my head & just did the schedule for today & it felt GREAT! We will be running a 5k in just a few weeks and you get to watch the seasons change in the process!

    I'm doing the same as you, going far ahead and thinking 'this is hard, there is no way I can do next week'. But we just keep going and doing and knowing that yes, we will run a 5k!
