As promised, I managed to haul my ass out of bed this morning for my Couch To 5K Week 2 run. Unfortunately, my Garmin had other ideas so I had to make do with my GymBoss and work out my time and distance afterwards.
I decided to head to Hove Rec as each lap is about one kilometre, which would make it easier to keep track of how I was doing without the Garmin. It had been raining over night so it was nice and cool when I set out – a perfect morning for a run!
Although I’d only done one run of Week 1, I figured I would be ok to move on to Week 2. The session called for 20 minutes of run/walk with 90 second reps, which confused me a bit as that doesn’t add up to 20 minutes! Still, I wasn’t going to be too anal about it and figured I would aim to cover around 3K, finishing on a run segment.
In the end, I managed to do 3.2K in 22:30, which is slow for me, but given that the ratios were equal for running and walking I’m pretty happy with that.
The leg doesn’t feel too bad either. I still have a bit of numbness but it feels ok on the whole, so hopefully I’ll get another run in on Tuesday.
How’s your running going? Did you get out for a run today? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
