Week 2: Couch to 5k Chronicles

As I mentioned last week, I don’t like running. And after two weeks of doing it i still don’t like running. However I’ve gotten better at it, or so I believe, after all I completed week 2 of the Couch to 5k program.

Day 1:

Day 1 was a Monday and as you all know Mondays are just shitty boring days. weekend hangovers, work and all.

Despite all this I braved the morning chill and hit the pavement just after 5. As usual the program began with a 5 minute warm up walk whch was followed by a running time of 90 seconds (increased from last week’s minute). To be honest it wasn’t as taxing as I had imagined.

The walking interval also increases to two minutes in week 2, which gave me ample time to recover. Walked, ran, walked and ran again for some twenty minutes and went home pleased with myself.

The first day of week 2 was refreshingly better than the whole of week one.

I think I might just enjoy this. Completed the run with energy to spare. Never winded, though my calfs were a bit sore. The body is probably wondering what the heck is going on.

 

Day 3:

I love Fridays. So I went out and ran. I was feeling pleased with myself because I was about to complete 2, TWO, whole weeks of running. Never did this before.

And (proudly) I never walked during the running intervals.

Whilst running is hardly enjoyable, I could at least get used to it. Bring on week 3 please!
