This is the 7th week (out of 9) of my “Couch to 5k” journey. I didn’t realize until Monday that all 3 runs during the 7th week were full running, but I made it! I even got a runners high on day three!! [. . .]
This is the 6th week of my Couch to 5k journey. I still hate running though. Sure, I love the feeling of accomplishment I get after finishing a run. But — I definitely don’t lose myself in running, or feel a “high” from it . . .
This week was quite eventful. . . I switched apps, got my best pace & best distance, and completed my 1st workout without walking intervals!
This week I increased from 3min jogging intervals to 5min jogging intervals, which I was nervous for. But, it turned out I did just fine, and I really AM able to follow the c25k program! I am a tad worried about the end of next week: the big 20min run! There’s just a 5min walking warm-up to 20min of uninterrupted running — yikes! But we shall see how that goes. . .
Done week three, which means I’m 1/3 of the way through. It was a struggle this week, but I made it through! Still averaging 1.4mi in 30min, but I have about 42 days (or 6 weeks) to go until the 5k. . .
31min program duration for week 2 // Brisk 5min warm-up walk • Alternating 90sec of jogging & 2min of walking for 20min • 5min cool-down.
Two posts in one day?! Whew! But — in order to stay accountable to myself, I am publishing my proposed running schedule as I train for this 5k. Because if I’m actually going to do it and stick with it, it can’t be on some crumpled up piece of paper in my apartment. So, here’s my attempt at making it some sort of official . . .
