Thursday’s Sit to Fit (C25K but with a running group!) went a lot better on Thursday then Monday. Basically what happened on Monday is that we forgot to walk the first 5 minutes, so we ended up doing 15 minutes out, which meant we went farther, and didn’t warm up totally right. Thursday we remembered to walk the first 5 minutes and therefore didn’t go as far.
I was able to complete all but 2 sets of the 2 minutes running and 1 minute walking. The first was at the end of the 10 minutes out, we turned around about 1 minute into a set and I got confused and ended up walking 2 minutes to a 1 minute run. The second was the last set. I was tired and did about 1 minute of running, and then walked at a fast pace and then ran the last 20 seconds so that I could finish running.
This time I went a lot slower, which really helped. I made sure to not really go much faster than my fastest walk. This way I was still working the muscles but not losing the energy as fast. I was surprised to find that I was still able to do the talk test during my last two full sets. Which is why I was able to complete almost all the sets, I wasn’t sprinting like I had been the first night.
Tonight is another night, but we up the time. Basically its 15 out and 15 back, so like last Monday but on purpose this time. I’m slightly nervous but my goals remain the same: do as many full sets as possible without harm and make sure to complete the last set either by running the full thing or running the last 30+ seconds.
