Good morning, Couch-to-5K’ers! How’s it going? Did you survive Week 1? Or maybe you are just finding us and getting ready to lace up your shoes for the first time?
Week 1 went excellent for me. I was surprised, really. Yesterday, I set out on my Week 2, Day 1 workout. The runs increase to 90-second intervals, followed by 2 minutes of walking. I don’t know if it was the heat, or the crap food I ate the day before, but it wasn’t all I had hoped it to be. I was slapped in the face with the fact that running is indeed, hard. Weird.
Would this be easier had I not gained that 20 lbs back this year? YES. It’s a little late for the would have, should have, could haves… but did you know that for every pound you lose, there is a FOUR pound reduction in knee joint stress?
This week, my goal is to focus on just that. One workout at a time, one pound at a time. The bigger picture is just too overwhelming.
How is your training going?
