Week 4 And Counting
I purposely did not listen or “read ahead” as to what each coming week entailed regarding the kind of pain each successive week would bring via the Couch to 5k program. As of this morning I completed, albeit with some extra walking that I’m attributing to a terrible and late dinner last night, and am none too excited about week 5. While selecting tunes for the next week and creating the new soundtrack I had to listen to in the introduction as to what was coming up. Apparently by day 3, I’ll be running for 20 minutes solid… mentally and physically I don’t think I’m to that point yet. I understand that running for 20 minutes does not a 5k make, but the whole program is 10 weeks, right? I guess I’m a little surprised that that long of a run has arrived already.
The program has worked like a champ thus far, so I’m not questioning the insanity behind it, but I must say I hope I’m not setting myself up for failure.
