My Life of Travels and Adventures: Running?


20 October 2010

This afternoon I decided to give running/jogging a shot again.  This summer we have been riding bikes a lot and I have not used our treadmill too much, so today was a test run.

I started the C25K program back in the spring but never really made it past week 2.  I would get to discouraged and frustrated with myself and lack of ability to run for more than 90 seconds at a time.  After bootcamp this summer (and all the running she made us do) and loosing 40lbs, I decided to give running a try again.  My goal is to be able to run a 5K.  I should say that I am using the term run lightly... its more like a slow jog, but hey I am doing it.

So, today I set a plan to walk/run in 2.5 minute intervals for 30 minutes.  I walked the first 2.5 minutes, jogged the next 2.5, walked 1 minute and then ran for the next 6.5 minutes (1/2 mile).  I was feeling pretty good, but the hubby came home at this point, so I decided to stop for the night.  I am pretty proud of myself for that short little run I did.  My plan is to get up in the morning and run again...
