So many people have at least heard of a C25k or Couch to 5k program. It is a program that has a person gradually build up running skills to run a 5k, even if they don't run regularly.
So then, what is with the D25k, well that is a desk to 5k. At work the fitness center is doing the program over lunch two days a well. I've never really been a runner. Even when I did my marathon I was a slow walk jogger. So me and some people from work decided to sign up. I knew I was going to have to miss many classes, but still wanted to try.
What do I want out of this:
1. increase my fitness
2. Go from a jog to actually a run - which is a much more comfortable gait
3. Do something I have never done before
4. see my times improve
So I missed the first two formal classes. But me and a work bud did our first Wednesday after an all day meeting (ugh).
I missed Friday due to a group lunch, but did it this AM.
So I am on track! It is starting off slow, 60 sec run 90 walk. But I am keeping up a running gait so I am thrilled.
