Couch to 10K Week 2 Day 2

April 27, 2011

If you see someone hobbling down the street, it's probably me.

I am so unbelievably sore.

On the plus side I shaved 35 minutes off my commute home by trying a different bus route.  I have to walk 2.5 blocks, which is no big deal, except when you're practically crawling down the street.

I'm starting to think that I should have done the 5K, oh well.  I'll just repeat weeks until I can move on.

I'm getting shin splints from the running, does anyone have any advice for that?

From Oblivion to Couch to 10K

April 25, 2011

If this were Wheel of Fortune, that title would be in the Before and After category.... this is why you don't let your grandma pick the shows you watch.

I've started the Couch to 10K.  I was going to do the 5K, but I thought, stupidly mind you, if I'm going to do 5K I may as well do 10K.

Today was day 1 of week 2 and I almost quit about 14 times on the treadmill.  I really have no idea why I kept going.  My usual pattern is to just quit half way through and say "good enough."

But I didn't, I finished.  I think I'll have to repeat week 2, I'm not used to this much running.  And frankly, I don't like running all that much to begin with.

Then as I was blog hopping I saw this quote:

"Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells 'CAN'T", but you don't listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper 'can'. And you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are."- Unknown

I don't remember where I saw it, as I peruse a lot of blogs.  But it was just want I needed to read. 

We'll see how Wednesday and Friday go.
