McFatty Monday

posted in: Life | 0

It’s Monday again!  I have been doing the C25k runs on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and last week I stared doing the weight training part of Body For Life on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  I don’t particularly enjoy going to the gym every day so I decided to try something.  This week I’m testing whether doing the C25k program AND the weight training on the same day works for me.  I did it today and while I was dead tired at the end, I’m glad I got it out of the way.  Now my legs have a chance to recover until Wednesday.

This week is week 4 of C25k and I was actually pretty scared about how it would go.  The runs went from 3 minutes to 5 minutes and I wasn’t sure I was going to make it.  They were hard, I won’t lie, but they were not nearly as horrible as I thought they would be.  For the first time in my life I had sweat literally dripping off my body.   The worst part, I think, is that I get bored on the treadmill and there is no air movement in the gym.  Those 5 minutes lasted an eternity so I’m REALLY scared for next week and all the weeks after that.  Ideally, I’d run really early outside, to be done by 7:30am but that means I’d have to wake up before my son does and I’m just not up to it.  By the time I actually leave the house to go to the community gym it’s 8:30am or so and WAY too hot to run outside.

We’ll see how this week goes.
