Well its week 2! (Every Thursday is the start of a new week for me. Since I realized I didn’t put that in the last post.)
So its update time!
If your just reading about this for the first time, my blogger bud, Lydia and I are doing the Couch to 5K challenge! Here’s a recap of why I’m doing it-
There are 3 main reasons I’m doing this.
1- We want to have another baby. But pregnancy for me was HORRIBLE. It was so bad. I got so fat, labor was ridiculous, I had so many aches and pains. I was just completely miserable. Beyond normal pregnancy pains. So I really want to get in better shape and be able to run throughout my next pregnancy to help with labor, delivery, aches and pains and general problems. Being fit can drastically reduce these problems.
2- I eat healthy but don’t really do more then walk and some morning yoga stretches. End working out. I really, really want to have more physical stamina. I’d love to go to all those fun 5K runs everyone always does.
3- I wouldn’t mind losing a few extra pounds and tighten up my butt and leg muscles. I’m totally comfortable with how my body looks, but being a little thinner would be healthier and probably more comfortable.
Weight: 178 lbs. Although I didn’t lose it from running. I think that’s just from my regular fluctuation.
Work-out: Week 2’s workout. Brisk 5 minute warm up walk. Alternate 90 seconds of running with 60 seconds of walking for 20 minutes. 5 minute cool down walk.
How I’m feeling: Oh man. Scared. Week 1 was way harder then I thought it would be! Running is tough stuff. I give all you runners props! I feel slightly better and more athletic then before, but I still feel like running was created by the devil. Bring it on week 2! I’m really looking forward to getting better at this!
How this week’s first workout went: Ugh. Enough said.
How last week went: Well, I had a really rough start and I’m a day behind. Its exhausting and my fiance was going to do it with me and bailed out last second. It was just a pain. I’m getting back on track though!
