Yesterday evening I completed Week 5 Run 1. A little background on me. I first completed C25k back in 2012. Since then, I have only ran, with no walk breaks, 3.1 miles three times. Mostly, I give in to doing a run/walk. I always start and go strong for a few months, then take a few months off. It is a vicious cycle. I have completed to 10k's (always a run/walk). Also, in the months I am going strong I always run then walk when I feel like it. I finally decided I wanted to be able to run with no walk breaks so I decided to go back to the C25k app. I follow the run to a tee, then I throw in some extra running at the end, because I do feel more advanced in logging the miles be it a run/walk then just doing only what the app says. Following the app is making such a difference though. It keeps me focused and forces me to push through, because I haven't been told to stop yet. I am a rule follower, so if it says run, I am gonna run. LOL. Last night was a big accomplishment because I did all the intervals and was able to add on a 8.5 minute run at the end. I am not sure how I was able to sustain, but I was motivated to not stop running till I hit the 2 mile mark. I am very slow at this though, with the walk breaks, I think my time was a 16.01 mile. Whatever it is, I am running more than walking so it can only go up right? I just need the motivation to stay consistent. It will get harder because the time changes this weekend and it will be dark when i get off of work. I tend to prefer to run in the evenings during the week and in the mornings on Sunday.
