5k Training - Week 2

May 10, 2010

Whew!!! I made it through my second week!  Because of being out of town earlier last week, I did miss 2 workouts at Curves, so ended up exercising 5 days last week - 4 of those running, and 1 at Curves. There was no soreness to battle this week (jumping for joy), even with using the "somewhat hilly" - uh, I'd say really hilly - outdoor walk/run path at my hotel. 

Here's how my training for last week went (I'm following the Weight Watchers "Walk-It Challenge" Train to Run a 5k plan):

  • Tuesday = 5 minutes walking, 3 minutes running/3 minutes walking x 4, 5 minutes walking
  • Thursday = same
  • Saturday = 5 minutes walking, 5 minutes running/3 minutes walking x 3, 5 minutes walking.
  • Sunday = 5 minutes walking, 5 minutes running, 3 minutes walking x 2, 5 minutes walking.
Again, I made it through all 4 days, and I ran the suggested amount of time and DIDN'T HAVE TO STOP YAY!

Saturday and Sunday were FREEZING here!  When I ran yesterday it was only 39 degrees out.  I had to dig out gloves!  It's May... I guess Mother Nature did not get the memo. 

On Sunday, it was a treat to have my husband and "L" tag along with me.  I walked with them for the walking portions, and ran ahead and back for my running time.  "L" (2 years old) kept yelling at me on the running portions, "Mommy, come back I need you."  Very cute!

This week we get into 7-8 minute runs.  I am still asking myself... am I crazy?  No need to answer that one.
