Can I Get a Do Over?
The injury bug has bitten a few of us here in the Sluiter house… Kate has an injured knee and has begun attending physical therapy in order for her to comfortably complete the 5k in September. As of late last week, I seem to have stumbled upon a slight but annoying case of shin splints. I’m in process of taking a few days off and have decided to “re-do” week 3 of the Couch To 5k plan… I was feeling really good about how well I was feeling during the jogging portions and was impressing myself as to the speed I had been able to recover after the longer runs. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to remain at my current state of fitness and haven’t backslid too much from the extra day or two off for recovery.
As some of you may have figured out, I’ve been using the plain couch to 5k podcast for my audio cues so I know when to do what. But since it’s only a vocal cue, I’ve begun adding my own soundtrack in the background to keep things interesting. Week 2 was a fun Cake mix, week 3 is currently a Beck mix that is rather bouncy. It works well for the 3 minute runs, good to keep pace with. Here we are coming up on week 4 and I’m in need of a new featured artist. What say you? Feel free to vote as often as you like, I’m looking for some reader input. Cheers!
