Couch to 5K update:
I finished week 5 of the program today. I actually didn’t check to see what was coming up, so I was a little surprised. I hadn’t done the program in years, so I forgot this week had 3 different days. Last Thursday was:
5 minute warm up/ 5 minute jog/3 minute walk/5 minute jog/3 minute walk/ minute jog/ cool down.
Day 2 (Sunday) was:
5 minute walk/8 minute jog/5 minute walk/8 minute jog/ cool down.
Then I checked before I went this morning and saw it was a 20 minute straight jog. Eeeep! That made me a little nervous. I haven’t run that long in years. I was able to do it outside, which was great. When the jog started, it didn’t feel really great (but it never does) and I wondered if I would get all the way through. I toughed it out and did it all.
My leg felt about like I expected, which is the same as when I bike for a long ride. So, I will keep on going!
