It's Saturday and time for a Stick with it Saturday post.
Sunday- Today was not supposed to be a running day but I decided I wanted to try running Couch to 5K-day 1 to see how far I've come. It was amazing to me how much easier it was to run for just 1 minute. I ran harder than I usually do and by the end my right knee hurt....but by Monday it was OK. I ended up with almost 7 miles (including my run) on my pedometer.
Monday- Couch to 5 K Week 5 Day 1 I was really nervous about this run. It increased to running 5 minutes with a walking break, run 6 minutes (walk break) and another 5 minute run. I have to say, it was NOT easy. I had to keep fighting the negative voice in my head saying that I couldn't do it. I did it. I always feel better when I'm done.
Tuesday-Just a light day. I only had 2.59 miles on my pedometer and I didn't do any other exercise
Wednesday-C25K today. It was more running but went better than on Monday. I ended up walking a couple of miles immediately after my run. It was so hot out. I had 6.68 miles on my pedometer including my C25K workout
Thursday-Another hot day. I walked 5.4 miles in the morning, then we went swimming and I put in three 20 minutes sessions of constant movement/swimming in the pool. I ended up with 7.32 miles on my pedometer.
Friday- It was the third day in a row here of temps in the 90s with high humidity. I slept late so by the time I got up it was too hot to run. I had some things to do in the morning then went to my in-law's pool. I spent 30 minutes in the pool. When we got home from swimming, I decided I would just do a Leslie Sansone walking DVD and stay inside (we have AC). I did the 5 minute warm up and a 15 minute mile then decided since I was already all sweaty I might as well go out and run. So I did....this included 2 sessions of running 8 minutes straight. Then, I came back in and did another mile on the DVD which included strength training with a stretchy band.
Saturday- I have no formal plans for exercise today.
