Couch to 5k Check-In #7

C25K-Badge
Good morning runner lady friends! It’s time to check in from last week and let me know how the running is going. Are you successfully completing each day? Is it getting easier, harder or staying just the same? Can you BELIEVE that you are running for such long periods of time? Give yourself a big pat on the back for making it this far.

You only have TWO weeks left of this program. YES, TWO WEEKS. What do you have planned afterward? Sign up for a race if you haven’t already. There is nothing like getting out with other runners yes, you are a runner) in the morning/evening/whenever and burning some calories as you sweat your way through a race course. It is fun, promise!

So go ahead, keep your mind in the right place (I can do this, I can do this, I can do this) and get out there for Week 8 of Couch to 5K!

Week 8- Days 1, 2 and 3
Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then jog 2.75 miles (or 28 minutes).

Week 7- Days 1, 2 and 3
Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then jog 2.5 miles (or 25 minutes).

    This has been an eye opening experience for me!
    As a somewhat active middle aged woman I have struggles with arthritis, osteoporosis and other ailments, yet have not considered myself older, inactive, whatever…until I look in the mirror or at the scale. Doing the C25K has shown me that I need to walk, not run, I need to gently and consistently exercise my body, and that in spite of daily aches and pains I must keep moving – still working on it!
