C25k. Keeping myself honest



Recommended Posts

Also as a side note, I have noticed my stamina is better too. We went for work to a trampoline park and did dodgeball and general jumping. I did 2 hours!! Never could have done that before!

I think I need to avoid the back to back runs - I went out sunday to catch up and am really sore in my hips and thighs and i feel tired. I will go out Wed - it is supposed to be the 2.75 mile day - but we shall see! I will just keep thinking "I think i can I think I can"

Yesterday I tried to do the 2.5 miles in 25 minutes again - but i was really tired so i settled for 2.0 miles in 27 minutes

I definitely don't recommend doing runs two days in a row. If you need/want to do cardio on your off days, then try some sort of cross-training. You will definitely have a harder time recovering and be more likely to injure yourself if you run multiple days in a row.

I can second this. See my post earlier in the thread. I did not have good results. There is a reason the program is designed like it is. It is awesome that we have been bit by the running bug but you definitely need that day off.

Week 6 done... was suppose to finish week 6 last week but only got in 1 run due to all the thunderstorms last week in Houston. So I restarted week 6 this week.

Just ran 2 straight miles for the first time in my life. Did the fastest mile thus far (10:12) and was really pushing it to get past 2 miles in the 22 minute allotment. Ended up covering 2.75 miles in the 32 minute workout (includes 5 min walking warmup and cool down). I'm absolutely spent... but in a good way! 2 weeks to go and 1 month until the 5k.

Holy shit!! 10:12??? Amazing!! And here I was about to post how excited I was to hit 11:29! I finally felt OK to run again after a week off for injury. I am in la jolla ca for business and just did an epic excursion and I am super proud of myself. I did 1.75 miles on a trail running at a 11:30 or so pace. Turned around and did a walking excursion trail out to a scenic view for about 1 mile out and 1 mile back. Then ran another mile after a mile walk. My hip and knee hurt a bit from the trail so I didn't want to push it. But I feel amazing and so proud of myself!!! I forgot that if I went down I had to walk back up!! But I did it! I never could have before!

Also (this has nothing to do with running but I also feel super proud of this) after the run I went to the jacuzzi in a bathing suit to soothe my legs and sat there and talked to a guy for 45 minutes. IN A BATHINGSUIT!! I rock. Hahahapost-286600-14727850811897_thumb.jpg

The 5 k is next week. Wish me luck!!post-286600-14727849379269_thumb.jpg

@@goplay94123 Sounds like a great adventure. I'd count the bathing suite and hot tub chat as part of the adventure! All things that I imagine would have been WAY outside your comfort zone not too long ago!

Don't fret about pace. That's something you can work on much later, once you've gotten your stamina and conditioning where you need it to be.

Today is the day!!!! I may end up walking but I am going to try to run. I have a pinched nerve in my neck and shoulder and am on meds but I am going to try.

I did a practice 1 mile day before yesterday and it was brutal. But I will go slow and steady tonight. I will post how it goes either way!!

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
