I had the most amazing workout tonight. The funny thing is that when I walked in the door from work tonight I had no desire to do it. My enthusiasm just wasn't there. But I had to keep on the training schedule because there is a looming 5K in January that will be run. So I quickly changed clothes and got to it immediately. About midway through my first 90 second run and I had this surge of happiness that I had gotten out there and it energized me through the entire workout. I worked on the breathing some more, trying to get the timing right and it powered me through the entire time. I felt so strong tonight - like, I've GOT this. It was awesome. Week 4 starts on Saturday and all I have to say is "Bring It"!!!
In a previous post, Beth commented and asked where I got my information about breathing and what C25K training plan I would recommend.
Breathing - Running: A lot of great information can be found on About.com. Search for whatever you are interested in and you can find a wealth of information at your finger tips. I found the breathing technique there: How Should I Breathe While Running. About.com also has topical RSS feeds to which you can subscribe.
C25K: I do the training plan at Cool Running. They have an app for Android (and probably the iPhone too) that I also use. The lovely woman tells me when to start running and when to stop. That way I can concentrate on the breathing to fuel me through the workout. It seemed the most sensible plan because it starts you off slower than others I've seen.
