As of this morning, I’ve completed week two of the Couch to 5K programme, and it feels like I’m starting to make progress.
Though, my thighs still jiggle as I run.
Unlike week one, this week didn’t feel “too easy”. It was a little closer to “just right”. Or rather…
Day 1: “&(*@ ! This was a bit of a jump from last week“
Day 2: “Okay, yeah, I’m feeling it…“
Day 3: “This is awesome. Need to keep it up for next week“
Today I was able to get 3.6km in the 32 minute session on the treadmill. I felt happy, healthy and able to breathe and/or walk afterwards. This has to be a first for me. The last time I went that far in half an hour I was beetroot-red with jelly-legs (a little like I get on the rowing machine).
I could probably repeat week two and get a little more out of it, but I feel like I’d be able to handle heading into week three – so I will.
See ya soon, week three!
