Couch to 5k

 

Week 1, Day 2

Week 1, Day 2

So, I guess this running thing isn’t a fluke! After not running for 13+ mo, I have now ran three times in less than 10 days.

It feels great to be back.

I’m taking things slow with C25K and spacing out workouts as to not overwhelm my ankle. The last thing I want to do is re-injure it!

I headed to the gym because I can’t handle this heat, especially since I don’t have much lung capacity right now in the running game (with asthma). Today was Week 1, Day 2:

  • Walk 5 min (All walking at 3.0-3.3mph)
  • Run 1 min, Walk 90 sec x8 (increased speed each interval… starting at 4.2mph and ending at 5.0mph!)
  • Walk 5 min

SQUEEEE YOU GUYS!

I’ll be posting a photo with C25K deets on Instagram and my Facebook page… so make sure you’re following me there!

Oh, and one of these days I’ll finally blog about gaining back all the weight I lost. I’m not ready to totally own up to that right now, so I’m just going to pretend like it never happened.
