went for a run

Not an official C25K workout, as our schedule's all crazy with Holy Week. But I went out and ran for 22 minutes, and mapped it afterwards. It was almost 2.3 miles, which means I'm running a little less than a ten minute mile, which: yay! That's perfectly respectable, especially considering how hilly my route was, and that it was the middle of the day, in the full sun.

I did about a five minute warm-up and five-mute cool-down too, walking.

Also, this was a similar route to one I took back in the first week or so of the program, when I was walking more of the time than I was running. Really cool to just be able to run the whole thing, without stopping, and go even further than I could be for. That was a really, really nice pay-off for the last few months' work.

Kickbox FastFix

Did workout 2 (lower body) on this DVD, and threw in 40 squats at the end as a preventative measure against knee injury (squats are supposed to help).

C25K: Week 6, Workout 2

Which, sadly, is the last workout in this program that doesn't include 20+ minutes straight of running. Le sigh.

Oh, well. I'm sure if the program thinks I'm ready for it, I must be ready for it. Right? right?

Ignoring the sound of crickets,

Weeks 7 & 8

Week 7:
3 total workouts - P90X Kenpo, Jogging & P90X Back & Chest - was a good week to get back on track.

Week 8:
2 total workouts - P90X plyometrics & jogging - full week led to less exercise.

I should add that my son is now taking a class at the local elementary school 2x/week, which means that I get a half a mile walk in twice a week in addition to the working out.  Every little bit helps, right?

This week, I'm on Spring Break, and we're supposed to have visitors.  It will be an extra challenge to stay on track.

C25K, Week 5, Workout 1

This one felt really good - it felt like my body had actually decided it knows how to run.

And after the first couple of laps, my knee didn't hurt! that's a first!

(I'm gonna keep ignoring the fact that the program thinks I'm gonna be running 20 minutes straight by Monday.)

C25K, Week 4, Workouts 2&3

We did workout 2 on Friday, but I forgot to post about it. Did workout 3 today.

I'm a bit nervous about starting Week 5, because by the end of it we're supposed to be running for 20 minutes straight. Eep!
