C25K - Week 1 Day 0

9:08 PM

 I attempted the first Couch to 5K workout today.  All of the workouts are roughly 30 minutes.    Today's broke down like this

 - 5 minute warm up walk
 - 1 minute jog & 1.5 minute walk (8 times)
 - 5 minute cool down walk

I made a bunch of mistakes today:

  • Wrong apparel 
    • Attempting to jog in ill fitting draws is a poor life decision.  Jogging, outside, in front of the public is difficult when your underpants are under your under.
    • I wore a regular bra.  Nuff said.
  • I underestimated the workout
    • I was pretty confident today's workout should be 29 minutes of walking with about 43 seconds of jogging.  That was a set up. 
  • I chose the wrong music
    • I set Pandora to Britney Spears.  Don't judge me!  Britney has some great workout music.  Or did.  I should've gone with Beyonce. 

To be honest, I didn't do the whole jogging thing.  I mean I started to jog a couple of times but yeah.  I did walk the whole time.  Well, almost the whole time.  I kind of bailed on the cool down.   So, this doesn't count.  We'll try this again tomorrow.

  1. Keep at it, Bek!! I started doing couch to 5K about a year ago and it was the best thing I ever did. Now I can run around a track twice without stopping. I Hated it in the beginning but pretty soon I loved it..
