This isn't a race~we're just training for one!

Monday, February 25, 2013

So, I have made the decision to change C25K training programs. I have given this a lot of thought and it seems like the right thing to do! The one we have been using isn't an interval program, for the most part, and the one we are switching to is interval based. As I looked around more it seems most of them are interval based and that seems like a better way to build endurance and fitness. In making the change, I debated about where in the new program to start. We just finished week four, but in the new program we need to step back a little. We will start week three. At first this felt a little like going backwards but I had to remind myself that this isn't a race! I want running to be a part of my new healthy lifestyle, so I will happily take the time I need to develop this new skill. Have I said how much I enjoy this C25K thing? I am LOVING it! emoticon

    I hated it the first time I started trying to run, even intervals, but now I'm doing the program again and I recently ran my first mile ever as part of a 1.25 mile interval.
