Couch 2 5k

So I decided to start Couch to 5k again. I think I mentioned this in my last entry, but I can’t remember for sure. I quit the last time I tried on week three, but this time I have been exercising some first so hopefully I am in better shape and less likely to quit.

I did week 2 day 1 yesterday. Week one was pretty easy and smooth. Over the weekend I decided to go to a real running store and buy some good running shoes to see if that would make a difference. The guy watched me walk and told me I needed support shoes I think because I pronate or turn my feet inward. I made the mistake of not wearing them in a little first. I wore them yesterday and they felt so heavy compared to the shoes I had been using last week. I think I am just feeling the heaviness of the support in the shoes though. Hopefully I just need to get used to them and by friday everything will be all good. Week two is defintley harder, I had to push myself, but I think I was just feeling a little sluggish on Monday. Week two is walking 2 minutes and running for 90 seconds for twenty minutes. I hope that by the time I do it the third time on friday I will do a lot better.

This time around I have been reading a lot of posts about running and runners and different things you can do. I doubt I will become a “real runner” but I’d like to give this a real shot and see how I can do. Maybe I will even blog more because of it. I’m going to try anyways. Anyone else doing it who wants to be my buddy?

  1. Hi! Congrats on the exercise! I’m right with you – I started the couch to 5K and quit at three weeks! I’m going to try just walking for a while. When that gets boring, I’ll try the program again. Let’s see if I can just stick with walking long enough for it to get boring. 🙂
    Glad you and LM are doing great! Can you believe I have a two year old???

    • Hah you quit at the same point as me. Good luck with the walking, that is how I started out. I have been just walking on the treadmill since the beginning of march and then just recently decided to try to add in some running. I can’t believe you have a two year old! Mine will be two in about 3 and a half months!
