C25K - Sorta
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
I've wanted to try C25K for a while. After a few weeks of marching in place (a la Leslie Sansone videos), I figured I could throw in some running in place. I found the following podcast so I could play it on my computer while trying: http://www.4shared.com/mp3/49N
So, running in place is pretty tough for me. If you aren't familiar with the C25K concept, during Week 1 you alternate running for 60 seconds with walking for 90 seconds. I found out I could not do all the running segments. I am going to have to do alternate running segments, and walk the others. And, the running in place part sucks. So I ended up doing itty-bitty laps from my family room, through the kitchen, into the dining room, past the entry, back into the family room. Again and again and again. That's a lot of little laps, but at least I have the room to do it. Perhaps next week I will be up to running every 2 of 3 of the running segments. Little steps!
I really like how this lady produced her podcast, especially since she simply did it as an amateur trying to shape up, not a professional.
I don't know if the music is quite fast enough, but I'm sweating! And it is music I like, which is a plus. I'm looking forward to advancing to her other podcasts.
Anyway, here's to trying! I'm feeling good, even if I didn't do it perfectly.
