Couch to 5k


JULY 5TH 2012!!!!

That is when the upcoming Firecracker 5K is coming to town. And I’m going to do it!!!!!!

I don’t know if it’s considered a marathon, but for me running 1/2 a mile is a marathon.

So yeah, I can jog about .25 miles…. not far at all….

3.1 miles.

I’ve looked up a couch to 5K thingie plan and I’m going to give it a go.

I’ve got about 17 weeks until the event…. so I’ve gotta get working on it

The workout plan I found intends for you to get to a 5K in 9 weeks. Going out 3 times a week for 9 weeks. So I’m thinking of just doubling the steps.

Like Week 1 is

Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes

3 times a week…. so if I figure if I do that for two weeks (6 times)….. get it?

I’m just going to do each week twice….I’ll be one week over….

Now if I go 4 times a week it’ll cut off a couple of weeks…. so we’ll se how it goes.

I’m probably going to start on a treadmill (GRRRRR) only because there is too much snow to actually go out and try to jog….

So we’ll see….

Wish me luck!!!!!
