First Up, I just want to say a huge thanks so much for all your comments on my last post. It gave me a real boost to see that I might have offered a solution for other people to drink more water!! I have taken you advice and printed the motto out. It's on the fridge, on my work computer and on my diary :o)
So, I want to complete the C25K running program this year. I want to be able to run.
Once I can, then I will decide if I like running and if I will continue it. But I want to get to the point were I can run for at least 30 minutes, before I make this decision.
I had a look at the c25k program and can tell immediately, that I am not ready for it yet, so I have made up my own pre-c25k program.
Basically I have started with:
Week One: Walk 4:30 minutes; then jog 0:30 seconds and repeat this six times for a 30 minute session + cool down time.
Then I will move onto:
Week Two: Walk 4:00 minutes; then jog 0:30 seconds and repeat seven times for a 31 minute session + cool down time.
After that the walking time will keep decreasing until I get to 2 minutes and then I will increase the jog time to 45 seconds and then a minute.
This should take me 8 - 9 weeks, but like the c25k program, if I feel that I need to repeat a week I will.
After this I should be ready to start the c25k running program as it starts with 1 minute runs and 90 seconds of walking.
Slow steps to get me were I want to go. That what this whole process is about. The slow steps :o)
P.S. Can you believe the BOOBS is going to happen one week before I fly off to Paris?!? Two weeks later and I probably could have added in a quick trip to the US from France or England :( I just know everyone will have an amazing time & I hope I will be able to get to a one of these gatherings one day.
Hey, how about if we plan a get together for all the English ladies out there. I will be in England in October (first two weeks I think) I would love to meet up with some lovely strangers :o)
