C25K: Week one, day one

La Pyramide du LouvreDistance: 1.93 miles
Calories Burned: 203

Notes: I actually ran this once last week, but didn't get my three runs in like I wanted to, so I thought I'd give it another shot this week from the beginning. Getting out of bed is definitely the hard part, since I have to be up and going at 4:30am if I want to get my run in, shower, and get dressed in time for Abby to do the same.

Week one of the C25K program is pretty straightforward. You start with a 5-minute walk, then alternate 60 seconds of jogging with 90 seconds of walking for about 20 minutes, then end with another 5-minute walk. I'm doing this on the treadmill in our garage, which is a bit strange, but feels like a nice way to start and has the added benefit of tracking mileage and calories burned.

C25K started with these guys at Cool Running. There are a number of good podcasts out there for the program that include music and cues for when to run / walk. This week I'm trying out Suz's Couch to 5k Running Podcasts.
