Run Run as Fast As you can..

Well I did it again today!! I actually made it around the lake and almost home before the program was over so I did the whole thing in 1/2 an hour!! I'm pretty impressed with myself!  Although about 1/2 way through I felt like someone had a vice grip on my calves. WTH is up with my calves hurting so much? That's really the only thing that is giving me trouble so far. Hopefully they will adjust and stop hurting so much.  It was actually quite a bit easier today even though I went farther. I didn't lay around moaning as much when I got home either hehe.

So I finished the Week 1 runs, there are 3 for the first week.

Week Workout 1

Brisk five-minute warmup walk.
Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and
90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes.

So since I'm going every other day I'm trying to decide if I should repeat a Week 1 or go onto a Week 2, which is

Brisk five-minute warmup walk.
Then alternate 90 seconds of jogging and
two minutes of walking for a total of 20 minutes

Hmm decisions decisons. I guess I'll decide on Friday when I see how I feel. I got some music uploaded to my phone finally so I did the run/walk with the music and the program on my phone. Pretty cool actually! The cues to walk/run go right through the music.

So I've decided that if I'm going to continue to run I need the following:

new sports bra
more tight fitting pants to run in
arm band thing for my iPhone (sticking it in my bra currently lol)
new running shoes

I think I'll give myself another week before I go out and spend money, unless for some reason we end up at the mall or a shoe store before then.

I definitely bought new running pants to hold in the jiggle! It makes such a difference, as does a great sports bra. Have fun shopping for your new fitness clothes!
