Today I started Week 4 of the Couch25k running program. I was nervous. It would be my longest run ever.
Don't laugh, 5 minutes of straight, non-stop running? Are you kidding me?
So, it's 3 minutes of running, 90 second recovery, 5 minutes of running, 2 minute recovery. Repeat.
I thought for sure I would have to stop and walk. I considered repeating week 3 before starting this. But, I decided to give it a shot.
And I did it. No stopping to walk. I went straight through.
There was sweat, MAN was there sweat.
And I didn't die. Didn't even really feel like I couldn't make it.
And I realized something. I am getting stronger. I am getting fitter.
As for the weigh-in on Sunday…not so much. I was only down .2 . As in, two-tenths of a pound. But, at least it wasn't up again. I'm still up about a half a pound for the month.
But today I don't feel so bad. I'm dang proud of myself.
Next week might do me in, though. Stay tuned…
