Ackkkkk.. once again I’m disappointed. Last week I did well and lost 4 lb but no movement on the scales this week..
However my fitness continues to improve and my clothes definitely continue to get looser! I like that feeling…the downside is that my BUTT now gets sore when I’m sitting in one place for too long. I’ve rediscovered my coccyx…it sucks! Hee hee!
Yesterday I completed run 3 on Week 5 of my “Couch to 5K” program and ran a total of 20 full minutes (2.5 km) on the treadmill at 4 mph and set at a 2 incline (the theory is by adding a small incline it would be similar to the extra effort needed to run outside). Everything bounces, I’m not a pretty sight, BUTT (you see I did a play on words there) I can’t believe I can run again. I try and hit the treadmill 3 or 4 times a week now for at least 30 minutes and at weekends take some long walks or go for a hike. I LOVE challenges..
I’m fairly confident that I can reach my goal of running 5K by October 7th on the treadmill however running off the treadmill is so very different and much more difficult. At the moment I can’t even run 1/2 a km outside. I’m going to try and do more track work and just try and do my best
PS Is anyone else doing or done the “Couch to 5K” or who jogs? I’d love to get your feedback….maybe you can share some tips. Did you have difficulty running off the treadmill when you had done most of your training on it?
