HAPPY MONDAY TO YOU!!!
This will be short and sweet as I did not originally plan on blogging today. However, I read so many great blogs about the wonderful runs that some of you went on over the weekend. Now I felt inclined to share my ever so small victory.
I started the C25K training a few weeks back, but never consistently followed through. So I this week wanted to start back at Week 1 Day 1. With that in mind I reluctantly changed into my workout attire, then I sat back down to distract myself on Facebook. Lucky for me that did not last long.
So off I went. W1D1 includes a brisk 5 minute warm up walk, then alternate 60 seconds of jogging with 90 seconds of walk for a total of 20 minutes, and finally a 4 minute cool down walk.
Time: 29 minutes
Distance: 1.99 miles
Calories Burned: 182 (I really need an HRM — it’s going on my Christmas list!)
I am really happy with that. Especially since I finally figured out my breathing and why I kept getting so winded. Every time the bell rang for me to run I would take off running like a bank robber running from the cops!! Who was I running from? I think that is why I was so frustrated and never stayed with the program.
Today I took it one step at a time; small but quick steps! Much better!!
SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE!
