I am out of shape. I mean REALLY out of shape. I get winded walking up 2 flights of stairs.
Well I started Couch to 5 K on Monday. A quick explanation is this program trains you to run/jog a 5K in 9 weeks.
Well Monday my warm up was 2.5 miles an hour, my walk was 3.7 miles an hour and my run was 5.1 miles an hour. It was hard but I did it.
Yesterday I feel off the diet bandwagon hard. I ate like 4 Reese's Peanut butter cups (that is like 200 hundred calories right there and when you are on 1200 a day that is a big chunk of your calories). I really didn't want to go to the gym. I just didn't want to. It took me really dragging myself, but I went.
I thought about keeping my numbers the same as Monday, but then realized if I really wanted this to work I was going to need to kick it up.
So my warm-up was 3.7 miles an hour, my walk was 4.5 miles an hour and my run/jog was 5.5 miles an hour. Now the way this works is you run for 60 seconds then walk for 90 seconds. After the first set I was ok, the second set I was hurting, by the third set I thought I was going to die. But you know what I did it. I pushed myself through it. My legs were screaming by the end (note to self stretch better) but I did it.
I had a discouraging moment when two skinny stick girls were snickering at me. But you know what? My ass may be 3 times the size of theirs, but so are my boobs. So I think in the end I win.
