C25K: Week Two Recap
W2D1 ---> I increased my running speed to 5.0 today ... still running on the treadmill. Everything went really well ... except when I accidentally knocked the emergency stop thing during my last run ... oops.
W2D2 ---> Maintained my 5.0 running speed with cool down walks between 3.0 and 3.2. I feel like I could do my cool downs a little faster, but I don't want to overdo it and burn myself out ... so I've stuck with no higher than 3.2 for now.
W2D3 ---> I had to take a few days off ... courtesy of strep throat. It was good to get back on the treadmill though. Finding my calves tight about half way through my training today. I have not been stretching before my workout, but I think I need to start. I have been doing the 5 minute warm up walk and then moving right into my run.
Week One Mileage Log: 5.4 miles
Week Two Mileage Log: 5.4 miles
As manageable as it was for me to run these 90 second stints this week, I'm really not sure how I'm going to be able to run a 5K by mid March. Just thinking about next weeks 3 minute runs is enough to make me panic. Yikes!
