A New Venture: Couch 2 5K

CoolCLIPS_vc033649

I’ve done C25K in the past, and I was fairly successful. I decided to start it up again as a way to gain muscle strength and get healthier after my birth experience. I had to wait until my blood platelets were back to normal and for Max to be old enough to stay a few hours away from me. I have also scheduled an appointment with a trainer to really help me get on track. I have gained back a lot of my muscle, but, every once in a while, I try to lift or move something that was easy peasy before and I am not able to move it or move it easily.

Week 1 Day 1

Part I…
I will be redoing today’s run. I like to keep working on a workout until I can finish jogging in all of the jogging portions. I missed one jogging part. I should be able to move on to Day 2 with my next workout. It was a start and I actually do feel good about just doing it. I will never be a real competitor in running, but I do like the way it makes me feel.

Stats:
1.87 miles in 30 minutes

 

If any of my readers are interested in joining me, I use the Active Couch to 5K app, however there are a ton of really great C25K apps available. I like this one because my “trainer” is Johnny Dead. Who is a zombie. And randomly says, “Braaaaaains.”

  1. Good for you, although I am generally against jogging. Except for these guys. http://expertvagabond.com/tarahumara-runners/
