Today, I started week 3 of the C25K program.  This session was 5 min warm up followed by a couple of sets of 90 run, 90 walk, 3 min run, 3 min walk.  It ended with a 5 minute cool down as well.  I actually only did half of it because then it was time to meet with Chelsea for my trainer workout.

I worked extra hard in today’s workout.  We did a lot of similar exercises with a twist so many of them seems new even though they weren’t.  We included lunge/press with 10 pound dumbbells, hack squat, biceps curls, triceps dips (I really need to practice these), chest press and fly with dumbbells on an incline bench, etc.  There were lots of different activities today.  My arms especially are already sore.

After my workout with Chelsea, I did some treadmill work.  I complete a bit of jogging and mostly walking to round out my cardio to 30 min for the day.

I’m a bit concerned about the 5K training.  The longest training session during the 9 weeks is only about 30 minutes long.  I suspect it will take me longer than that to do the 5K.  I’m considering switching my training to train for distance more than time so I can make sure that the length doesn’t catch up with me.  Some training programs have you run/walk different times and others use different distances.  I may create a high-bred plan for my self.  I’m going to give it some thought over the next couple of days.

Next up: cardio in the morning (probably not spin since I didn’t do laundry yet)

  1. Lyn, keep up the good work it sounds like you’re doing an awesome job.

    if you think you need an adjustment to your training program then I definitely recommend trying a run/walk program – they are highly successful :)

    • Thanks for the comment. My current program is a run/walk program, but I think I need to be going longer than 30 min since it will probably take me closer to 50 min to complete the 5K. We’ll see how I feel in a couple of weeks.
