Ever since I graduated from C25K, I've felt a little lost. I've run 5K (3.1 miles) on the treadmill a couple of times and outside once. But I didn't want to just keep running 3 miles, and I was having trouble staying focused. I came across the Zen Labs 10 Trainer which is the same C25K app I used, but instead of ending on week 9, it started bridging to the 10K. It was kind of fun to go through and mark 8 weeks of training as "done"! :) On Tuesday, I did W9D1. And I thought I was going to die! I hadn't run for over a week (just no room in my schedule). The assignment was "only" run 10 minute and walk for 1 x 4 sets. I made it through. On Thursday, I just could not get into a run. So I walked around the track at the gym instead. I will attempt again tomorrow.
That Tuesday I had my biggest FitBit count ever! I surpassed 25,000 steps! How did I do that? By being a gym rat! In addition to my run (above) and my regular 6:30 Zumba class, I decided to try an extra class at 5:30. It was "Thighs, Butt, and Abs" Oh My! I still was not quite up to 25,000 steps, but it was close enough that I stepped it out at home.
Tonight, I will expect to hit a big number on my FitBit. I'm currently only at 3260 steps. And it's 4:30 PM. But from 6-midnight, I'll be "Walking for Hope". I'm doing the cancer relay. I expect to walk off and on all night. (My goal is to walk at least 1 mile for every hour. So a total of 6 hours.)
How are your fitness goals going?
