C25K - W4 & W5D1, W5D2

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

This is a little delayed. I had a rough time with W4 because I got sick and my asthma got 100% out of control. I ended up having to go to a clinic to get inhaler refills which led to me finding out I had a double ear infection! All better now but my asthma still isn't totally controlled - I'm back to running, though.

The comparisons to my last time doing C25K are a little depressing, though. I am not doing as well this week (w5) or last week (w4) as I did the last time I did C25K! I'm finishing each day, though, and that's what matters, right?

So, instead of posting comparisons (those are on my sparkpage, still), I thought I'd briefly jot down how today's run went. Today I ran 8min, walked 5min, ran 8min. I actually felt that the 5 min walk interval was too long and by the end of the first 8min run I was really in a groove. I was going downhill, though, so I'm sure that was part of it, but I felt that I could keep going easily.

I took my rescue inhaler before and after my run, and for the first time in a couple of weeks felt that my limitations weren't cardiovascular, but muscular. My legs felt weak! Maybe it's time to start some strength training.

    Be careful with your asthma, but I'm glad you are feeling better and went to the dr.!

You are doing great! Weeks 4 and 5 are HARD! emoticon
