Running – Couch 2 5K Week 3 (and an apology)


TAYLOR YARDS RIO DE LOS ANGELES (2)
For reasons best known to my MP3 player, when I updated my podcasts this morning, it decided to delete week 2. I had no alternative but to move on to week 3.  Even though I wanted to keep on Week 2 a bit longer without the week 2 playlist I was scuppered, so onwards I went.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to start getting up earlier earlier than the “short n shouties”. Fortunately, today was one of the days that I managed it, which meant I could  have a small breakfast  before dragging the beast out of their pits. I had plenty of time to digest  whilst completing my warm up routine ( running after uncooperative children), and having some food in my system when jogging made a huge improvement on my energy level.
For week 3 the runs have gone from 90 seconds to 3 minutes and surprisingly his increase actually wasn’t nearly as hard as the leap from week 1 to week 2
Whether it was from my fitness improving or the addition of breakfast, it felt pretty easy.
Week 3 came as a delightful surprise, when I thought that I had one or two runs left I heard the announcement that I was taking the last run, I was astonished and allowed myself an extra long cool down walk as a bonus.
The other surprise was the unexpected increase in stamina when it comes to keeping up with the kids who are natural interval runners, it surprised them too because I actually caught them!
I’m listening to Robert Ulreys playlist http://www.c25k.com/podcasts.htm
So how are you guys doing? How many of you are still sticking with me? What week are you on?
What’s surprising you? Have you seen any of the effects of your running in your life?  Do you have a playlist to recommend?ss NEW LOGO  BW 2011.ai
***Apologies – I’m so sorry if you got bombarded with old posts over the weekend (“thanksgiving sale2012/Oscars 2011) masquerading as new ones, we are in the midst of migrating to a different platform and some blogs accidentally got their dates edited so published as new posts. We will be having both a sale and a giveaway in the near future though so “Keep ‘em peeled”
