Hi all, I started from week 9 since i run 5k. Unfortunately, 5k is my threshold. I cannot pass it, so i thought i would give this app a try. Ia am not sure if i am follong it correctly or not. It starts with 4 10 minutes runs. I ran the first and second rounds. On the third i ran about 6 minutes before i got really tired and had to walk and that is howvi finished the day by running one minute and then I would walk for a minute. My question is do i keep repeating day one till i can complete all 4 rounds running on my pace, or do slow my pace till I can complete the full course? Thank you for you inputs.
I've completed day 1 of week 1 despite my SUPER weak ankles. Literally as soon as I Starr running, my ankles start screaming, especially the left one. I'm hoping that this really is just a strength issue. My exercise regimen has been nonexistent for more than a year now, aside from a brief attempt at doing a 30 days of yoga challenge in January. So because of my week ankles, I never did a full 60 second run during any of the 8 rounds. I ran as much as I could (34 seconds or less when I looked at my phone once) and walked until it told me to run again. But I completed the 8 rounds! That's a LOT better than my first attempt about 2 months ago when I had to quit after 3 rounds because I pushed my ankles too far instead of giving them a break when they asked for it.
I'm a 29 year old mother of two, and when I started running, a smoker. I started running when I realized I needed something to stop cravings, I'm a former drug addict (7 months sober). So since I had not run in 11 years, it was hard to do, but I pushed through it. Where I live , in Missouri, It's very hilly and I find that to be a good thing. Anyway, I quit smoking cigarettes in May 7 and running has become much easier. I've cut a full minute off my mile and all cravings have stopped. I can't wait to run my first 5k. If I can do this, anyone can.
This is where i will document my journey. It will be largely in journal format and is simply a place where i will record my thoughts and notes on my workouts. 01/12/2015 - W1D1: Great Run. Weather was too bad to run outside, and my preconsieved dislike for treadmills had me dragging my feet to the gym. I was pleasantly surprised by the treadmill run. While i feel that running outside is more beneficial, the treadmill allowed me to focus on my breathing and stride instead of looking for holes, uneven ground and traffic. Also, because it constantly displayed my pace, it pushed me to keep my pace up (more than i would have running outside) even during the walking portions of the circuit. Felt very tight in my muscles, in particular my hips and calves after the run so spent at least 30 minutes on a Runners Yoga Sequence (I found it on Pintrest) and woke up the next morning with nearly zero soreness.
