Couch to 5k – Week 5 v2


Ok, so, this is my second attempt at Week 5. You can find the first attempt here.

Day 1: I really didn’t think I was going to do well today. I felt dehydrated, and frumpy, and gassy… but, I sucked up and ran. And guess what? I did it! It actually didn’t suck all that much (compared to last week’s attempt). I think the slight rain shower that showed up halfway through helped. When I got home and settled down, I realized I wasn’t all gassy and indigestion-y. Win win!

Day 2: Not so bad. Isn’t it funny when you get a in a mood to do something, and you just do it? And then it’s done? And it feels so good? Sometimes it doesn’t always happen like that. Usually I sit around for an hour and get up the energy to go running, and then I realize that if I had gone when I first said I was going to go I could have been back already. That was this day. It wasn’t too hot, but still hot enough to make me miserable. I successfully completed the run though, even though I almost got hit with a baseball. Almost.

Day 3: Done and done! I took my own advice and just ran instead of sitting around thinking about running. It was hot, it was humid, it was really buggy, and the trashcan I kept running by smelled like ass, but now week 5 v2 is OVER. Thank the sweet baby Jesus!
