Last night was my first night to train for the 5K. Pretty simple. I am using the training program at Cool Runnings.
I decided, spur of the moment to skip the first week and just jump to week two. Bad idea? Not sure. Last night's run was pretty easy. I never felt like I struggled the entire 20 minutes I was alternating between running and walking. I did feel like I was pushing myself. One of the reasons I skipped to the second week was because I didn't think week one would be enough of a challenge.
Once I got off the treadmill I was sweating and my heart rate was up, which was the point in the end.
I am supposed to be doing this three days a week. Not sure what the next two days will be this week, but I figure that will sort itself out.
So, one day down, who knows how many to go.
