C25K - Week 3 Day 1

So like I mentioned in my previous post, I'll be doing a 5K on June 6th. At least I'm pretty sure we're doing it. It was mentioned to me that a group of girls from work would be partaking in this event and that I should join in. But...I haven't officially signed up for it yet. I'm not too sure if anyone else has either. But anyway, for me this is kind of a big deal because I used to swear up and down that I'd never run as a form of exercise because I always hated it. I would look at people's faces as they ran by me and they'd always have this look of agony on it. I would say to myself, "are they crazy? that doesn't look fun at all". Well, well, well, how opinions changes. I realize it's probably the best form of cardio to do, but I'm still not a huge fan.

So since June 6th is right around the corner, I decided to jump back into the C25K program at week three. So today's run/walk looked like this:

Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then do two repetitions of the following:
Jog 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
Walk 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
Jog 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
Walk 400 yards (or three minutes)

I got through it pretty easily, but we'll have to see how the rest of the week goes.

Oh and I went to the dentist today for a cleaning and they told me that my last two remaining wisdom teeth (the ones on top) need to come out. Oh joy. AND I have to get a cavity filled next Tuesday. Yay.

Oh lord...the only good thing about getting your wisdom teeth out is not having to work for a couple of days!

I'm really impressed with the Couch to 5K program you're doing! I've always wanted to run a 5K, but have just been intimidated by running--everything hurts when I do.

Wow! good luck with this Lori! You should be in great shape after doing the training for this. I can't run much becouse of knee issues but always wish I could.
