C25K - Update

Today was the first day of week 3.  I did the first day yesterday too, unsuccessfully.  It's hard.  Yikes, it's hard.  It's a BIG jump to run 3 consecutive minutes (that sounds so lame!).  I'm keeping at it though.  I actually went to the track this time.  While I have walked on and off for the past few years, I have never gone to the local track; it just seemed like it would be "boring" going around in circles.  I made the decision to try it today because, while I love my neighborhood, I needed to focus on putting one foot in front of the other and not worry about traffic, uneven surfaces, transitions between sidewalks and other various surfaces, etc.  And...I did it!  Not well, not fast, but I made it!  

I also weighed in this morning...I am down 6 pounds.  Yay!    

This is exactly how it was yesterday!


  1. Good luck with C25K :)

    The hardest part is starting, and you've done that. Running just gets more fun from here!

  2. Thanks...finished week 3 today. A little afraid of week 4. Still working at it though!

  3. Wow! Down 6 pounds already... that must feel good. What an accomplishment! Good for you!

  4. Thanks, Chrissy! It's been hard. Since I hit 40 (and now that I am 40+ a few years), the weight kinda feels like it is entitled to live with me and doesn't want to move out. I am nursing a sprained tendon in my ankle...so no running/power walking for a few days (I hope it gets over this quick!) Ah...the joy of it all!
