I finished week 5 of Couch to 5k!! [small voice]so what it took me a month?[/small voice]
As grouchy as I was to workout today…as reluctant as I was to run…I just sucked it up and did it. I’m also super proud to report for the last 4 weeks I’ve been doing week 5, during the running minutes, I did not stop once. I reeeeeeally wanted to. Most times I felt like my legs wouldn’t make it, but I just summoned up the strength to go a few more seconds. I wonder if that feeling would ever pass? Today, I used music and the closed captioning on the TeeVee to get me through it all.
The month of July, will have me doing week 6, which is the final time I run in intervals, after that, it’ll be pure running *eek* so I hope I am conditioned for it. While I’m doing segments, I’ll still do 4.5mph for those runs, then the solid run will be done @ 4mph.
Sometime next week, I’ll post the workout routine I’ve been following. It’s pretty intense, each day I do something different and every 3-6 weeks I up the intensity. But it’s also consistent, in that every M, W, F, it’s the same routine.
Now that I’ve been following it religiously for the last 6 weeks, I’m going to push the stakes and add to it. Gotta do it. Summer time is the worse time for me workout wise. The heat makes me cranky and sluggish. All I want to eat is super cold sweet tea, Oreo McFlurries, Double Chocolate Chip Frappachinos or Vanilla Shakes from Crystals…so yea…in lieu of doing that, I must use sweat to cool me down sweat beads
