This five minute blog thing will never work out! Already on my first day, I’ve wasted two minutes already doing research on something I want to write about and talking to my husband. We’ll have to come to a compromise on this…
So I finished the fourth week of the C25K last week and didn’t really feel like I’d finished the week off strong. Not enough walking time between the longer runs for me, I think – just knowing I only had a minute and a half to cool down before I had to run for five minutes was kind of stressful. I was going to do that week over again, which they recommend if you don’t feel prepared to move on, but I checked out week five, and it seemed way more doable than week four, so I steamed ahead. Actually, I didn’t so much steam ahead as I was pushed out the door by my husband – I had been laying on the couch under a really warm blanket and has absolutely no motivation on Sunday.
Really great songs on my playlist, really cold weather – my fingers started to freeze during the five minute warm-up walk, but I made it through the run fine.
Ack! I’m writing a six minute blog now!
I have been reading other blogs about the C25K, and is there only one plan? It seems that some people are talking about run/walk intervals that I’m not seeing on my chart.
8 minute blog! Not bad.
