Couch to 5k – Week 3


I’ll give you a quick summary of how Week Three works.  You warm up by walking “briskly” for five minutes.  Then, you do a 3 minute jog followed by a 2 minute walk  – do that 5 times then cool down with another 5 minute walk.

Runner’s high has left the building.

Day 1:  OMG MY LEGS.  Seriously.  I thought my legs below the knees were LITERALLY going to fall off.  My calves instantly hurt once I started running.  I cursed the hills in my neighborhood; I grunted at people as I passed them, I was d.r.a.g.g.i.n.g.

Day 2:  Well, this week can bite my ass.  I brought the dogs today because they were chomping at the bit about coming with me.  So instead of taking my normal route, I hoofed it up one hill and then ran on the soccer fields.  Which was a nice chance of pace.  Literally.  I slowed waaaaaaaaay down today.  Between my dogs and their 3-legged friend Oliver the Great Dane, and my cankles – we didn’t do a great job.  But!  We finished. And that’s more than I can say for you people sitting on your couch reading this!

Day 3:  Not too shabby!  I was surprised that today didn’t kill me… I was for sure I’d have to call the husband to come pick me up from the soccer fields.  I went early in the morning since the temperature was supposed to get in the high 70s, so that was a wise decision on my part.  They whole time though, I was thinking of how awful Week 4 will be. UGH!
