Last week I started the C25K program on my iTouch. Now before I go any further, I don’t run, I don’t sprint, I jog but I felt this was a good start to all of this. Also I have repeated day 1 twice and day 2 twice only because I can’t catch my breath after each 1 minute jogging. It does get easier about the 1/2 way point but it’s hard. It is extremely hard. I am trying really hard to do this but for me jogging is new, hard and a bit discouraging. Now that doesn’t mean I’m going to quit because I’m not. I am going to work at this for a long time, if that means week 1 for a month then that’s what it will be.
Now my question is, is there a secret when it comes to breathing? Also after two days in a row of doing this my calves hurt. I do stretch before and after, is there another secret I need to know? Please help me. I really want to do this. Also with winter coming I can no longer get in 4-5 miles a night of walking for an hour so I had to do something so figured a 30 minute walk/jog would be an excellent way to go. I don’t have a treadmill so that means walking outside at 20* or so and sucking in that chilly air is a bit sharp too.
I need ideas, comments, help. Please.
Okay off to work on snack for the kids. Take care and God Bless!!!
