C25k: Week 1 & 2

Oh my goodness, I can't even believe its already Thursday 
We went to visit friends in Springfield and didn't get home until Monday evening. It was a wonderful weekend spending time with our friends, but this mama couldn't wait for her own bed. 
I guess that's a true sign of getting old right?

Anyways today I'm going to talk about my week 1 and 2 of couch to 5k. 
I'm on week 3 right now but I'll do an update next week when I'm starting week 4. 

Week 1: It went better than I thought. I probably haven't ran or any type of jogging in a year or longer. 
I was terrified I wouldn't be able to do the 60 seconds of jogging. But to my surprise it went rather well. 
Two of the three days I ran on the indoor track at my gym. One day I ran on the treadmill. 
I used to hate, hate, hate running on the treadmill but I kind of like it now. I feel like I can work on speed work that way. Which I know speed work isn't something I need to work on right now but I know its something runners work on to get faster. I already know I need to be a little faster. 

Week 2: Running 90 seconds and walking 2 minutes. I really thought I would struggle running 90 seconds. It just seems like a really long time. To my surprise it actually went really well.  All three days this week I ran on the treadmill. This week the indoor track was crazy busy so I felt like running on the treadmill, I would be out of everyone's way. It was a very good week for running. One day I was having a rough day. You know, kids were crazy at home, nothing was going right kind of day. I didn't want to go run but I did and it was probably the best run I've had in a while. I'm starting to look forward to running again. 

My first race is March 26th. I won't quite be done with the program. Its an eight week program and I'll be starting week 7 during the race. But I'm looking forward to the race. Chris will be done it with me. He will be mostly walking because of his bad leg. But I'm excited to see how good I actually do. 

Cheers to week 3. Updates coming next week! 

I hope everyone has a happy Thursday!!
