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
