Long time, no blog

well, it’s been awhile. Sorry! or, You’re Welcome! So what happened? Nothing really. No, I mean it, nothing much at all. I was in a pretty bad mental place after the disappointment of Nautica. I took some time off, then starting training again and got a couple of injuries and etc etc blah blah blah.

But I’m back now. I’ve got a pretty good training routine going and the diet is coming along (sort of). I’ve started Couch to 5k again. For those of you that aren’t familiar with it, it’s a training app for your phone that has workouts based on running 3 days a week. You walk some, run some and repeat. Every workout you increase the run minutes or frequency and lower the walk time/frequency. Pretty simple concept. I know lots of people that have had great success with it. I, however, am not one of those people (yet, anyway).

The week 1/day 1 workout is a 5 minute warmup, then for 15 mins it’s run for 1 min then walk for 1.5 mins 6 times, end with a 5 minute cool down. Easy enough, right? Well, the first 3 or 4 times I did it, I COULD NOT DO IT. I could barely run for 30 seconds. I had to repeat week 1/day 1 over and over until I got discouraged and quit the program. I went through this several times over the past year or so. I abandoned it and concentrated mostly on biking and swimming and then when I did go for a “run”, I would pick a distance and just try to run until I couldn’t and then I’d walk, repeat. Well a couple weeks ago I decided to try it again. And lo and behold, I DID IT! (week 1/day 1, not the whole program silly). I was psyched!!! I even did week 1/day 2! Then today I’m happy to say I completed……week 1/day 2. What?! son of a …… welllll, a couple of weeks ago I got in a minor bike crash with some injuries that left me unable to do much but swim. But I’m back now! and I will carry on! And someday, somehow, I’ll finish the damn Couch to 5k! or not.
