5 to 10K
Friday, May 24, 2013
Last night I started a 5 to 10K program with a new app. The zombie one was fun, but now that I'm done with the 5K training, it's all free form. Run when you want or walk. I'm not so good with that. I'll end up running a 5K every time and I don't want to do that. I really liked the extra exercises they threw in there for the 5K training (heel lifts, knee lifts and skipping). I think I may just use the new program as a guide and figure out a way to incorporate those extras. I'm also considering the plan that Beechnut gave me. But I think I improve more when I include walking breaks in my training so I'll have to figure out a way to incorporate all the stuff into one program.
Still searching for a strength plan I can stick with. I'm back to really hating the gym. I hate feeling like I'm in the way. I hate fumbling with the equipment. I need something I can do at home.
And I need to make the time to do it. I have plenty of ideas of workouts to do, but I just haven't been making the time to do them. At least I'm sticking with the running.
As for my size, I've pretty much been holding steady. At first I was really excited about the weight I had lost and how I was looking. Now, I guess it has become the new normal and I'm feeling like a slob again. That's probably because I know I'm not doing what I should be doing. But in the past, it seems like those first few pounds are always the easiest to shed. So if I can lose 10 pounds, maintain for a while and lose 10 more pounds, that would be cool.
This is a holiday weekend and I have no idea what to expect. My life is so weird lately.
