Now Playing Tracks

I might like running…

or at the very least I don’t hate it anymore.  I downloaded a couch to 5k app  and started on week 4 since I’ve been running for about 3 weeks now.  Today the workout was 5 min brisk walk warm up, jog 3 minutes, walk 1.5 min, jog 5 min, walk 2.5 min, repeat 1x.  I did modify it a little - I walked about 2 minutes in the first walking interval, and walked about 30 seconds in the middle of each 5 min jog.  I figure next workout I’ll decrease the extra walking by 15 seconds in each interval, then the same thing for the last workout of the week so that by the last workout I’m doing the exact workout.

It was the toughest start of a jog I’ve had in a while - I felt a little asthmatic and I had new insoles in my shoes so I felt like I looked like a newborn deer for the first 3 min. jog haha.  But I pushed through and my husband is right - it hurts up to a point and then it doesn’t get any worse.  You get to the point where you think you have to stop and when you don’t it’s just mental from there on out.  I even smiled in the middle of a 5 min jog!


Then I torched my arms.  I think this week I’m going to try an upper body/lower body split.  I like focusing on just one section of my body - I feel like I work harder and the best workout is the one you’ll do consistently.  I’m still trying to figure out my weight lifting workouts - I just can’t seem to find one I WANT to do consistently so I’m trying something different.

OOOh and I did Burn Intervals yesterday and did about 10% more than I did the last time!  Even after twisting my ankle on a weird jump.  So I modified a bit, but still pushed myself.  I really do like that workout :D  I think an every week for that one will be good.
