Couch to 5K: Week One
Week one is designed to get us gradually started on a running routine and slowly build our running abilities without burning us out from starting too fast. This program is designed to be run three times our first week with a resting day between each run. We'll have a brisk five minute walking warm-up followed by eight sets of 60 second interval runs. A 90 second recovery will follow each interval and we'll finish up with a 5 minute cool down.
I am so happy that I decided to repeat Week 1 of the program. I really want to listen to my body and afer completing week 1 of the program for the first time, my body was screaming, "What the heck have you got us into this time?" Having completed Week 1 of the c25k program for the second time, I can now more confidently say that I feel ready to move on the Week 2 on Monday.
My breathing has improved and my legs definitely feel stronger. I'm still a bit sore but not nearly as much as last week. I have more energy during the "running" sessions. Pretty cool.
Anyway, that's it...short post just to keep you informed. I'm certain week 2 will be a challenge. As usual, I will keep you posted.
Until next time...
