It continues

Strength P90 exercise yesterday, cardio + abs today.  (I picked that instead of running today.  I was barely treading water on week 4, and fear week 5.)

~Half done with C25k, goal check

Having completed week 4 of Couch to 5k, I am about half done. And the pattern remains: if I run on the day after I do a P90 routine, it’s torturous.   Like, legs saggy and completely without energy after … Continue reading

Busy day

0. Had poker last night, got home and asleep around 2am. 1. Brief appearance at next door neighbor boy’s 5th birthday at a park in Campbell.  I ran for about 4 minutes across the park to fetch the car.  Neat. … Continue reading

Couch to 5k update

Finished week 2 yesterday, did 3.49km in 31:36, for a pace of 9:04/km.  Pushed a bit harder than the intervals required. Eon and I, with our next door neighbors, have signed up for a 10k run in July.  Not nervous … Continue reading
