C25K Workout #2

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Yeah, scratch of C25K Workout #2.

I found that I caught my breath a lot faster, and my legs didn't scream as much. But it feels like I could get shin splints real easy. And really, my body feels so HEAVY as it bounces along. Like a giant bag of bricks.

I found that 1 minute of running is about 41 or 42 exhales. I may not need the stopwatch next time, ha!

I could use some better shoes. And actually, some pants to run in. Not being a fan of long pants, mine are mostly jeans or things I can wear to work. So I wore my Under Armor, with my pajamas on top. Seriously. Whether biking or running, I won't be winning any fitness fashion awards any time soon.

Will there be a Workout #3? Who knows!

    You can do this, I am running 2 miles now, I was you when I started. If you have an iphone they have a great app that tells you when to stop and start all while listening you your ipod. Totally worth the 2.99. You can do this dont give up. When you want to stop just play the Rocky theme song in your head that always works for me ;)

    I am definitely familiar with that bag-of-bricks feeling. I don't know if it will get any better. I'm just amazed that both of us are running!

    I think Saturday I might try running on the beach.
