Trying to Run

I’m trying to get back into doing couch to 5k, because I want to do more 5ks and eventually do a 10k and maybe a half-marathon…maybe.  This past week I did week 2 of the c25k program.  I did 2 miles each day with a warm up, cool down, and alternating 1 1/2 minutes of jogging and 2 minutes of walking.

5.17.11  Total time:  26:31  Average pace:  13:11

  • Mile 1:  12:59
  • Mile 2:  13:20
  • .01:  0:11

5.18.11  Total time:  26:47  Average pace:  13:24

  • Mile 1:  13:18
  • Mile 2:  13:29

5.21.11  Total time: 25:01  Average pace:  12:32

  • Mile 1:  12:23
  • Mile 2:  12:37


My hip hasn’t been hurting during the run, but it hurts afterwards.  I’ve been using ice and taking a couple of days in between the 2nd one and the 3rd one helped alot.  I just hope it allows me to run now that I have the bug and motivation again.
