Obsessed & C25k Week 2 Day 1

Monday, January 25, 2010

I beginning to think I am getting a little obsessed with SparkPeople and getting points and exercise points and just exercise in general. When I first started last year, I got a little obsessed but eventually moved out of it. Hopefully, I will move past being obsessed with the SparkPoints, but stay obsessed with exercise. I think the C25k will help with that.

Speaking of C25k, I started Week 2 today and I was able to do it. In Week 1, it was walk 5 minutes, then run 60 seconds/walk 90 seconds for 20 minutes, then another walk to slow down. The walk to slow down was not actually mentioned, but definitely necessary. Week 2 has you switch - you run 90 and walk 60 seconds. I wasn't sure I could do it. I didn't think 60 seconds would be enough recovery time, but I DID IT! After a started my long recover walk, I started thinking about it and I realized that if I had went through one more five minute repetition, I would have run a mile. Me - almost a mile! I can't hardly believe it. I think when I do my next C25k workout on Wednesday (hopefully), I am going to attempt to add that extra five minutes of running/walking because it will be so AWESOME to say I ran a mile even if it wasn't all at the same time.

    This is great! I'm doing C25K and I've been stuck on week one for the past few weeks. I think I'm a little scared to move on to week two. I'm determined to try on Sunday, though. Your post helped!

    I found I had to back out of a couple of challenges and move into a more relaxed mode around SP. So glad I did! I think that tempers the tendency to spend too much time around here, but instead the time that is healthy for my goals. You'll get there!! Glad your C25k is going well.

    Way to go. The only thing I run for is a bus, and that would make the bus driver worry that he might have to give me mouth to snout resuscitation. I could never run long distances, even when I was young and fit.

    I have no idea what a "C25k" is. What is it?
