C25K - Weeks 6 and 7

Soooo...you probably thought we gave up on that running bit, didn't you? Well, we haven't. We've been going strong at it and two weeks have passed by.

Basically, the last two weeks we've been running for 25 minutes at a time after a brisk warm-up walk. I don't have much to say about it, which is why I haven't been writing about it, but I will say that it has been a lot easier than I thought it would be. When we first started training, I thought I was going to vomit after just three minutes. When we first started training, every single stitch in my side seemed like the most painful thing ever. But now, it's doable. After 25 minutes, I'm tired, I'm breathing slightly heavier than normal, but I can do it. A stitch in my side is an irritation, but definitely no reason to stop running.

It totally helps that BB runs with me. There are many mornings when the alarm goes off that I really want to just hit snooze and forget the running. But when he rolls out of bed and grabs his running shorts, I know that we're doing it no matter what. He's also great motivation on the run, always checking in, chastising me when I get down about it, and getting super excited about the end of the run.

This marriage thing? It's really working out.

  1. I'm going to blame the fact that I don't drag my butt out of bed and run on Hot Brazilian being out of the country and not having him here to motivate me. But I didn't run when he was here so I suppose I need to come up with another excuse.

    But good for you!!! Keep it up!
