C25K Week 2 Garmin Fail

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.

  1. Glad you were able to get out there without too much trouble. My Garmin acted up on me last week, turns out the battery was very low. After I charged it up, it turned on and worked. I hope yours does too.

    My lower back is giving me a bit of a fit after my little run yesterday, feeling all tight and sore – have no idea what’s caused that but I’m being very careful not to really pull it out of whack…Argh! getting older SUCKS!

    1. Thanks Sharon. When I got back in I Googled how to fix the Garmin and it’s fine now.
      Sorry to hear about your back. I hope it sorts itself out soon. Getting older really is a bit of a pain sometimes – bad legs, bad back, sciatica… I’m starting to sound like my granny! 😉 xx
