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.

    I walked when I needed to with my 10K program. Are you doing the Mt. Olivet run? I need to get ready for the 5K. I don't have the focus - or time! - for the 10K this year.

    The weight room takes practice. I feel weird there, because I'm the only woman and it's downstairs and hot and dirty and gross. If you feel like you're always in the way, Stage 1 of NROL4W is great to just stick with. It does all the important stuff, with the big compound exercises. The other stages get weirder and weirder! I also recommend doing it in the morning, even though I know you hate getting up early. I love having it out of the way, and feeling good for the rest of the day.

    Or the beginner body weight workout from Nerd Fitness is also great.

    Sorry life is weird - I hope it's weird in a good way at least.
