I am officially halfway through C25k
This mornings run was wonderful. The temperature has finally dropped a bit here, so it was much less hot than normal. There was a light breeze as well, which I actually found rather peaceful. This run was no trouble at all. My quads seem to have fully adapted to the 5 minute runs and my feet didn't go numb at all! Its amazing to see the transformation that happens in just days.
I am looking forward to Week 5 as much as I'm dreading it. I honestly enjoy the longer run intervals more because I find that walking and re-starting a jog is a tad jarring for me. It seems that I settle into a rhythm right before the podcast tells me to change pace. Annoying.
On the other hand, I'm not sure how that 20 minute W5D3 jog is gonna be. I wouldn't say I'm doubing my ability to actually DO it (part of my "quitting is not an option" mentality I've adopted) but rather I ponder just how much that jog is gonna hurt, haha. Sure I'll do it, but am I gonna feel like I'm about to die? Yikes. For now, I think I will simply focus on W5D1, which is significantly less intimidating.
Overall, I'm feeling AWESOME about this program. I recommend it to anyone interested in becoming a runner or just getting in shape! And to those of you in-progress- keep up the good work! We can do this!!!!
