C25K W9D3

In Get Moving by Tanya0 Comments

This is it!! This was the last run of the C25K training plan!  It is a 9 week plan, but I completed it in 11 weeks since I was not 100% consistent with running 3 times per week.  Ask me if I care!  I still progressed from running 60 seconds at a time to running 30 minutes at a time in less than 3 months.  I’ll take it! I ran on the treadmill Saturday afternoon …

My plan for running this week got messed up. I intended to run Monday evening but then dinner ended up being late because we were dealing with computer issues.  Then I was up too late Monday night to get up early for a run Tuesday… I know, excuses, excuses!!  This just reminds me that it’s better to get it done in the morning BEFORE there are any distractions or issues that could get in the …

Sorry for two running posts in one day, but I had a GREAT run this morning!  I’m feeling a little more confident about my 8K in June because I ran the distance of a 5K today!!!! I ran outside today with friends. It was flat, the temperature was just right, and the company was great.  The time flew by. I’m pretty sure the same run on a treadmill would have seemed like FOREVER.  🙂   …

I FINALLY completed C25K week 8 Friday morning!  (It was planned for Thursday morning but I rescheduled.)  The last few weeks of the training plan have taken me forever because I have not been dedicated to the 3 times a week like I was in the beginning.  I’m trying to get myself back there!  I just noticed on my calendar that my 8K is less than 2 months away. GULP.  I NEED to be running 3 …

I FINALLY completed another C25K run this morning. It’s been an entire week since I ran last. I’ve just been letting other things get in the way, and letting my brain run wild with the excuses. The more I talked about the lack of running, the more frustrated I was getting with myself. I feel awesome after running. It feels great to know that I accomplished something and it helps me feel more confident about …

I did it! I committed to running today, and I did! I set myself up for success by going to bed in my workout clothes last night. I really didn’t want to get up, but I forced myself to do it. I will look for ANY reason not to work out first thing in the morning, but I know that I feel SO much better when I get it done and over with. I don’t …

So… the struggle continued this week with sticking to my running schedule!  Even after realizing it last week, I still let other things get in the way this week.  It’s been almost a week since my last run.  🙁 I should have made time yesterday but didn’t. I’m realizing that when I get overwhelmed, exercise is the first thing to go. I know that I need the exercise for stress relief, but it’s hard to make …

I didn’t do well sticking to my running schedule last week!  I let other things get in the way, and I kept saying “I’ll do it tomorrow” over and over!  I definitely could have and should have made time over the weekend but I didn’t.  Technically I should be in week 8 now, but instead I’m finishing week 7 and maybe starting week 8… I wasn’t about to let another excuse get in the way …

I was supposed to run yesterday, but I still had a lingering headache, so I pushed it back to today. I’ve had three days off since my last run, so I figured my legs would be nice and rested!  I guess they were, but I still struggled to get through this run!  I think it was more boredom or tiredness than physical limitations! The intervals are over. I’ve progressed to the point in the C25K …

The weather today was so beautiful that I was inspired to get OUTSIDE for a run! This is my first outdoor run of the season, and it felt great. The sun was out, but there was a nice breeze. The park was not deserted but not over crowded either. I was pleased to find the trail wasn’t all that muddy! There were no intervals! I ran the entire 25 minutes! Since I was outside, I …

I completed C25K W6D2 Saturday afternoon before dinner.  I was planning to do it in the morning but got busy and kept putting it off.  I probably wouldn’t have done it if not for the blog holding me accountable!!  Remember that on those days that you don’t feel like it either. Pretend that you have to report in to someone about your workout and you will be more likely to get it done!  Report in …

I completed C25K W6D1 Wednesday morning before work, but I was rushed to get it done. Like last week, I was busy working on the blog and didn’t want to stop for my workout. I really need to start setting a timer for myself. I watch the clock of course, but I always tell myself “just 5 more minutes” like you would with the snooze button! When I do that, I don’t have time to …

I did it! I ran for a full 20 minutes without stopping!!! It was hard at first but it seemed to go by quicker than I expected. I went slower than I had hoped, but who cares?! I did it! I almost didn’t. I wasn’t feeling great, and I have a mile long to do list. It was nagging at me in the back of my mind that I had PLANNED to do it today, …

Today was a challenge! I’m not sure if I was worn out from doing two days in a row or if it was because I ate a VitaTop before running, or if it was just a fluke. It felt like I was short on breath after only a few minutes of running. I slowed down, but I didn’t stop! It’s still so strange to me how some runs feel great and others feel terrible, for …

Once again I really, really, really didn’t want to do my workout this morning! I was busy working on the blog and didn’t want to stop. I had to force myself to walk away from the computer and get on the treadmill. I knew it was my only chance to get the workout in, and I hadn’t done any formal exercise since Saturday! I was nervous about the workout today because it’s week 5! I …
