Couch to 5K, week 4, day 2


I did it!!!!! I can’t freaking believe I did it!

The first 3 minute run was nothing.

The first 5 minute run was tough but it was a lot easier than Wednesday. I had a lot better wind this time. My legs hurt more on this run so that was the new challenge. I can fight through that though.

The second 3 minute run was tough but I still had my wind. That was amazing. I was huffing and puffing but I could breathe.

The last 5 minute run was the big challenge. I was OK at the start – a little winded but good to go. After about 2 minutes I was hurting something awful. I told myself to beat my old record of 3 minutes. Every second from that point I was thinking that I need to get to 3 1/2. Once I got to that point I focused on getting to 4 minutes. I’m dying at this point but I just focused on fighting my way through that last minute. I kept thinking how proud I would be if I did it. That got me through.

At the end it was a good thing I was alone in the gym. I could barely stifle a “YES!” Luckily it was muted but I was so happy I couldn’t control it.

I feel so awesome right now that I can’t believe it. I still think I might need to do week 4 over next week but I’ve actually got a lot of confidence going forward. I can see that 8 minute run in my future. It will be a while but I am psyched about breaking through the next barrier.

I am so glad I decided to do Couch to 5K.

  1. Are you running at the park? How long have you been working on it? I have been doing the elliptical and treadmills but running outside (for real) has to be a lot harder.

  2. I agree. It’s just too cold out right now. When it warms up I might try to map out somewhere to run.

  3. They say running outside is harder, but I think its easier. I don’t feel as ‘watched’ as when I’m on the treadmill at the fitness center. And also the cold air makes it easier for me to breathe. I’ve run in anywhere from 24 degrees to 60 degrees so far (I’ve only been doing this 5 weeks) and found that around 40 degrees is the most comfortable. Strange because I’m usually such a wimp about cold.

  4. Congrats on your running accomplishments!!!
