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.
So, you already know that I signed up for my first 5k earlier in the month . . . I still don’t know which app is best, but I guess I’ll stick with my combo of C25K – 5K Trainer Free and Pedometer Runners Buddy Free, both by Zan Labs until I get some advice or I get fed up. Anyways, I finally actually started running, using said “Couch to 5k” program thing. Here’s my little recap . . .
