Today, I could not be bothered. Hormonal and knackered from work, I got home, showered and set up for an evening watching TV adamant that I wasn’t going to move. My thoughts then turned to potential dinner options, I hadn’t nipped you the shop like I had intended to so I had very limited options – all of which pasta based. Having bought a work canteen meal, a voice in the back of my head started niggling “you have to get off of your fat arse Sophia”. And so, reluctantly, I got up, got dressed and went out on my first run of week 2 of the couch to 5k.
I knew that this run wasn’t going to be nice as 1) I wasn’t in the mood and 2) as I was away last week, it had been 2 weeks since my last run. Rather than 60second runs followed by 90sec walks, week 2 consists of 90sec runs and 120sec walks with the 5 minute warm up and cool down walks obviously. And don’t you feel it! Those extra 30 seconds really do make all the difference. The entire workout is only a few seconds to a minute more than last week but you do get substantially further. It will be great to see if the next two are equally as hard.
