Tonight was my first night on the Bridge 2 10K program. Week 1 - Day 1 went well. Now on to the weekly weigh in! It looks like I'm at a plateau right now. Hopefully with entering into the B210K program will help kick start some of the weight loss again!
There was actually some light rain in the area tonight, no T-Storms so I went ahead and went out to do my first day of Bridge to 10K. By the time I actually headed out and started my warm up walk, it had pretty much stopped raining. It just drizzled on me a few times during the run.
I wasn't sure how I'd be on this run, as it really ended up being a substantial increase from my ending of C25K. It actually went well, as with the rain going through, it had cooled down substantially. It was only in the low 70's when I was out tonight!! I almost felt COLD!
I'm glad it was cooler, as I think that really helped me get through the added 10 minutes, compared to my last run. So the goal of C25K was basicly to get up and running for 30 minutes straight. B210K doubles it and takes us up to running for 60 minutes at a time, in six weeks.
|Each workout includes a 5 minute warmup walk and 5 minute cooldown walk|
|Week 1||Duration: 53 min. |
Run 10 min/walk 1 min Repeat x 4.
|Week 2||Duration: 57 min. |
Run 15 min/walk 1 min. Repeat x 3.
|Week 3||Duration: 63 min. |
Run 17 min/walk 1 min. Repeat x 3.
|Week 4||Duration: 66 min. |
Run 18 min/walk 1 min. Repeat x 3.
|Week 5||Day 1: Duration: 55 min. Run 22 min/walk 1 min. Repeat x 2.Day 2: Duration: 61 min. Run 25 min/walk 1 min. Repeat x 2.Day 3: Duration: 71 min. Run 30 min/walk 1 min. Repeat x 2.|
|Week 6||Duration: 70 min.|
Run 60 min.
So that's what I have programmed into my RunKeeper App on my iPhone. The next six weeks takes me up to almost the time to start training for the 1/2 Marathon. My official start date for training for that will be October 16th. I will be on a 12 week program for that, with the actual last day for that program being the actual 1/2 Marathon race date of 1/7/12!
