Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes.
I was in a great frame of mind when the alarm went off this morning. No problem getting out of bed at all! My goal was 3 complete 1-minute miles and I managed 5. It’s hard while it’s happening and I’m doing a lot of huffing and puffing, but I am doing it, and rejoicing in it when it’s over. Total time 0:18:39
When I got back Kahuna was strength training. He had pulled out his old bike helmet, so I need to see if it fits so I can maybe try to ride his mountain bike this weekend. He’s a little over an inch taller than me so the bike should fit, it’s the rider I’m worried about 😀
My goal for this week is to bump up my time by 10% on Friday’s run. That will put me running 0:1:10 and walking 0:1:40 intervals. I know this is not exactly following what the real c25k schedules, but I’ve been reading tons that tells me not to increase by more than 10%, so I’m sticking with that. Will this keep me from being able to run the whole 5k? I don’t know, but I do know that I don’t want to hurt myself and at my weight I need to be careful.
So I’m planning the run and I’m going to run the plan.
We have a baby due in our family this week! My cousin (who’s more of a sister) is due this week with her 2nd. Unfortunately, I haven’t even met the 1st 🙁
Oh and Darla, a cassette is a grouping of gears on the back wheel of a bike 😉
