Couch to 5k Week 7

Day 1. I had an event on campus the past two days, therefore, I didn’t run until Monday evening. British Laura said we will no longer be doing intervals of walking and running. After my five minute warm-up walk, it’s straight running. I ran 2.50 miles today. After my warm-up, I felt great. At the […]

Broiled Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Salsa, Steamed Veges and Bhutanese Red Rice all for 345 calories. Yummy!

Couch to 5k Week 6

I was terrified of what this week would bring. Especially, when British Laura says, “It is important that you must complete weeks 1-5 before moving onto this week.”

Day 1. Unlike the last day of last week jogging for 20 minutes, it starts at 5 and 8 minute increments of running. I actually had a […]

Couch to 5k Week 5 Day 3

I only ran 10 minutes each run the other day. Today, my British accented trainer said, “Okay. Today you are going to run for 20 minutes. You can do it.” I thought, “There’s no way.” After a time which felt longer than 20 minutes, she says, “Okay. You’ve run for five minutes.” It usually takes […]

Couch to 5k Week 5, Day 2

This run was different from Week 5, Day 1 because I ran three extra minutes per run. My British-Podcast coach said each day will be more intense. Today was easy – after the […]

My bunny ate my homework.

Couch to 5k Training Week 5 Day 1

This week is three different runs. Today, I ran for the same amount of time as last week, but in longer increments and less walking between runs. The first run is always the hardest. I’m trying to wake up my legs, and it seems they are yelling at me, “STOP! IT HURTS! GO BACK TO […]

Couch to 5k Training Week 4

Here we go now. Let’s go! Said in my best British accent.

I decided to switch it up this week. Make it feel different. I’ve changed my program schedule to Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I’ve added in Yoga once a week, and next week, I’ll add in P90X ab workout twice a week. This will […]
