The last post I left off with was telling you about my upcoming first 5k that I signed up for. When I hit that publish button on that post, I knew I was locked in, and since then I’ve hit the ground running (no pun intended, ha).
Last Friday after I got off work I went to Target and purchased a cheap MP3 player and went home and downloaded the c25k (couch to 5k). Oh my gosh, the best thing EVER for inexperienced runners, seriously!!!
This is what my training schedule looks like:
Tuesday: Shred with Jillian Michaels (aka: the beast)
Thursday: Shred with Jillian Michaels
I am happy to report that I’ve completed my first week of c25k and I survived. This is huge for me y’all!!! I woke up at 5 am every morning on my workout days and I did it. The c25k is only three days out of the week, and thought it would be good to throw the shred in there on the off days. So Saturday will start the second week of c25k and with each week you progressively build up your running time and what I love about c25k and the podcast I downloaded is it signals when to switch from walking to running and vice versa. So there’s no having to watch the clock and time yourself. I just love it!
I actually feel like I can do this. I’m so excited. So I figured I could use Wednesdays on the blog to update you about my progress and you can be on the journey with me to my first 5k.
I just cannot say enough good things about the c25k. Do any of y’all have experience with c25k?
And for the record, I don’t care what people say, blog/twitter “friends” are friends in every way that counts. I feel so blessed. A group of us have started c25k at the same time and have become each other’s support system and encouragement. It so helps to know that we are not alone and to have that accountability.
Therefore, having so vast a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, and throwing off everything that hinders us and especially the sin that so easily entangles us, let us keep running with endurance the race set before us,looking off to Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of the faith, who, in view of the joy set before him endured the cross, despising its shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb. 12:1,2
Happy Hump Day!
