I ran yesterday.
I have been using an app to help me train for a 10K race. It’s nice because it doesn’t require me to run more than three times a week, which works well with my schedule since I actually prefer to swim. And this version of a couch to 10K actually alerts you when to start jogging, even if you are playing your own music or your phone is locked – both nice for me.
So far, it’s been fun. Most of the runs are quite doable and involves interval training with a warm up and a cool down. Week 4 was run 5 min, walk 2.5 min, and then run 3 min. Week 5 moved a little faster than I was ready. Run 8 minutes straight – out of nowhere. This app definitely encouraged me to keep moving, when I really wanted to quit. Although, I thought I might get sick there for a second…
I want to keep going – but, I accidentally looked ahead: Run 20 min, no walking!
Instead… I went for a swim.
