WUB #2

Sunday, April 28, 2013

This week I did a modified version of couch to 5k, The Spark People running plan is only 5 weeks, so I'm just warming up for it. Day 1 I walked 4 minutes and ran 1 for 35 minutes, Day 2 I did 3 minutes of walking and 1 minute of running, 2 minutes of walking and 1 minute of running, then 1:1 on day 4. This week it's scheduled to rain, so I'm hitting the gym for most of the days.

This week I tried doing a full body push up, and I kinda did one, the next day I did 5 weak ones. :-P I'm not entirely sure how this happened.

Tonight I went to Walmart (I hate Walmart because it's so busy... but everything is generally cheaper) I bought meals for work, soup for morning breakfasts, and some pants for work. I can fit in a stretchy 42 now! That's probably no different than a regular 44 or 46, but still it's nice visual progress.

I didn't lose weight this week. In fact I gained about 2 pounds, however I weighed after I ate, so that number may have been a little skewed. :-(

    Sorry, but I emoticon Wal-Mart. If it's made in the USA and its at Wally World, chances are its gonna go home with me. You can score some great deals there for sure. Keep up the good work Hal!

  I hate Wal-Mart, too, so I immediately appreciated this post.

The running plan you're describing is the one that I used to get started with running 15 years ago. Although I don't run anymore (at 42, the knees can't take it), I ended up running loads of 5k's, the occasional 10k, and a half marathon. Keep at it, and good luck.
