Jodys learning to run diary

Postby yummymummy » Mon Apr 23, 2007 9:01 pm

Well I did it I started th C25K program this arvo!!! I must have been a right funny sight as me, the 3 kids(my youngest Riley insisted on wearing a santa hat), my old dog ffloyd and my over exited rat(aka jack russel/Chihuahua)Benjiman hit the local oval. The kids played on the equipment and my old faithful dog ffloyed followed me and benjiman was on the lead running with me. This is what I managed-
10min walk to park
15 min jog 60sec walk 90 sec around oval
5min contemplating asking 1 of the kids to do CPR on me because I was buggered and soooo out of breathe
10min walk home.
I have asthma so its going to take me a while to build up my time and stamina but Im happy with this effort.
Im going again tomorrow this time without the kids.

Well done Jody. So glad to hear we have another runner in our midst :) You'll be running laps of that oval in no time.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

I found stretching really helps Jody. The exercises suggested on the cool running site are really good too especially the first three against the wall.

Good on ya Jody and remember you can repeat weeks for as long as you need to. Each time you do it you are making progress .

I have been running off and on for a while so I wasn't completely new to it. I have been having problems with my calf muscles so that's why I decided to go back to basics and see if it would help.

well today is the end of week one and Im gonna repeat it because Im finding it HARD!!!! I need to get my breathing under control before I could ever manage more than the 60/90 regime, I went this arvo and ran the streets because the park was full of footy players and I was to embarrased to go there :oops: but the hills were really tough and I walked more than I should have, and I feel like hurt my hip now that Im home, 1 thing I found fab was I pinched my daughters ipod and listened to Robbie Williams the whole time-very cool!!

well I managed the full 20min today! my legs were like jelly at the end and the walk home up the hill seemed longer than usual LOL!
but I can see some improvement which is motivating.

Ive always wanted to run but thought Id never be able too because of my asthma and my fitness levels, so 20min is huge for me!
