Simple Diet Journal #35 -- Walk/Jog 5K and BLC21 starts Tomorrow!!!!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Inspired by MRSVK11, I looked into 2 different walk/jog to Run 5K programs. There's the one on Spark -- and then there's the Run Your Butt Off program. I started yesterday and feeling pretty good about it. I like the slow pace build up, because I'm just not interested in getting injured.

I'm doing a combo of 4 minute walking and 1 to 1.5 minutes running. So far so good and I'm feeling really psyched. Forcing myself not to try and jump ahead of the program so that I can experience it as written -- although for Run Your Butt Off, I'd not even be doing any running yet -- but with all the Spinning and other cardio I do -- I know I'm ready for a start that has some running. Thank you MRSVK11 -- can't wait to see myself being able to run 30 minutes straight.

And . . . although I feel like BLC21 started a few weeks ago, the official beginning is Tomorrow and I'm so very pumped. The Mighty Mocha Hunters are awesome (and a shout out to the Rangers, too!). I am READY!!!!

Smiles for you today!

Peace, Health, and Living Fully No Matter What . . .

    emoticon emoticon I skipped the the first week too so we'll be on the same schedule and can be one anothers emoticon As an on again off again runner (I ran a marathon 5 years ago) I'd also recommend sticking to the program, even if it seems easy, to avoid injury. GOOD LUCK!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    This sounds like you are in a good place and GOOD for you !! I have never run in my life and I can see that walking really probably only take me so far but I've had trouble with my knees and chins for years so I'm terrible scared of injuries !! I can't wait to see how you do and maybe just maybe .... I'll try one day ????? Good luck to you
