Couch to 5K test

June 10, 2009

Last night I stopped over at my parent's house. After visiting with them, I decided to try day 1 of the C25K using their treadmill and a podcast I found for the program. I'm disappointed to say that I didn't complete the whole workout so I'm going to try it again today. I did a little over half. I'm not sure if I will do better outside when I can walk and run at my own pace instead of how fast the treadmill is set for me to run, but seriously...kudos to those completing this C25K challenge.
I'm not giving up though. I think it just might take me a bit longer to build up. I might do week 1 for 2 weeks. I believe there is a big difference between working out on a machine and actually having your body propel itself. I'm going to try it again on the track at the high school and see if I do any better.

    Thanks so much for the avocado shopping hint - I will try that out tonight!

    Way to go with the C25K programme, it does get easier quite quickly and I think you are right, you need to do it at a speed that your body is comfortable with at first. Speed bursts are for much later, lol!

    There is no harm in repeating a week either, in fact, I think it is best to take it steady to avoid injuries. I am stuck on week 2 at the moment!

    Good luck with the track session, looking forward to reading how that turns out.
