Tips for outside?
Do not dress too warmly. You'll heat up quickly doing this program, so dress so that you are slightly chilled when you start. I used to run 20 years ago and found that a light pair of gloves and a baseball cap was often all I needed to keep warm (in addition to shorts and a shirt, of course).
BTW, I have W1D3 coming up tomorrow.
I'm already in! It's cold an rainy today but I plan on doing 3 miles on the treadmill and lifting weights. I am looking for a really intense regimen that can push me into 5K shape as fast as possible, without injury. Can anyone relate, or am I being a little too anxious?
Hi Jim -
Thanks for the tips! I started out with a jacket on & then quickly stripped that off . I am going to change up my running location tonight & shoot for more of a flatter surface.....it's hard to stay motivated when I am running up a steep hill feeling like I want to just STOP!!! LOL!
I am going to download one of the podcasts too....I need something different to shake things up....
Awesome about (almost) finishing up W1....it's all downhill from here....
I hit a hill during my sixth interval last night. While it was a challenge making it up the hill for the 60-second run, it did feel very good to finish it.
Finished day ONE!
Ran at a local high school track....
IPOD on...feeling good....
First thing I see........... A 60 year old MAN running too.........my thoughts....."I'll be damned if he LAPS me!" (I am almost 43 years young)
He didn't LAP me...... but he was running before me..........and was still running when I finished...
We made eye contact....
I.......huffed and puffed.......but managed to smile back!
I WILL BE BACK ON THURSDAY MISTER!
My GOAL: To LAP the 60 year old MAN..........and SMILE without huffing and puffing!!!!!!! LOL
