I completed Week 4 of Ease into 5k yesterday morning.  All 3 days of Week 4 were the same and looked like this:

Week 4
Workout Time: 31:00 minutes

Brisk 5 minute warm-up walk. Then do the following:
  • Run 4 minutes
  • Walk 2 minutes
  • Run 6 minutes
  • Walk 3 minute
  • Run 4 minutes
  • Walk 2 minutes

Cool-down with a 5 minute walk.

So, now it’s onto Week 5.  This is where I gave up on Couch to 5k TWICE.  As I’ve mentioned before, my biggest obstacle is my own negative thoughts.  I’m going to do my best to remember that message up there.  It doesn’t matter how fast or how far I go.

The 3 days of Week 5 are all different and focus on taking shorter walk breaks/running more.  By Day 3, I’ll be running for 9 minutes.

Week 5 — Day 1
Workout Time: 34:00 minutes

  • Run 5 minutes
  • Walk 2 minutes
  • Run 4 minutes
  • Walk 2 minutes
  • Run 5 minutes
  • Walk 2 minutes
  • Run 4 minutes
Cool-down with a 5 minute walk.

Week 5 — Day 3

I don’t know if I’ll ever be that person that loves running, but I’ve definitely felt a great sense of accomplishment after completing each day.  Not to mention, I’ve also noticed a small change in the way all of my pants/shorts are fitting since I’ve been consistently running.  🙂

Bodybugg Stats
I didn’t quite hit my goals yesterday.  Wah wah wah.  Close but no cigar.
Calories – 2,120
Steps – 8,730
Activity – 57 minutes

I’m sorry if you’re missing pictures of my food.  🙂  I didn’t take any yesterday because I didn’t eat anything that you haven’t seen pictures of before.  I’ve been tracking everything and staying within my points, so I’m hoping the scale cooperates with me this evening.
