Over the past two weeks I really feel like I tipped the scale with my running as I started doing more running than walking.
I started off Week 6 with three different workouts for the week:
- Workout 1: a brisk 5-minute walk, then 5 minutes of running, 3 minutes of walking, 8 minutes of running, 3 minutes of walking, 5 minutes of running.
- Workout 2: a brisk 5-minute walk, then 10 minutes of running, 3 minutes of walking, 10 minutes of running.
- Workout 3: a brisk 5-minute walk, then 25 minutes of running with no walking.
Each run went really great, especially workout 3 as I was able to run for 25 minutes!! I was so excited to complete this run and even Laura, my “coach” said I can officially call myself a runner! WAHOO!!
From here on out I’ll be running for longer blocks of time, as I start to reach my goal for running 30 minutes continuously! During week 7 I ran for 25 minutes for each of the runs. For my third run, my housemate Jennie came along. She planned the run for us and it was nice to get out of the park and out on the street!
I’m really happy how things are progressing and I’m looking forward to continuing on to week 8!
