Caged Tiger - Week 3

Week 3 - For this week, choose between time or distance.
Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then do two repetitions of the following:
  • Jog 200 yards (or 90 seconds)

  • Jog 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
  • Walk 400 yards (or three minutes)
Do this 3 days this week.
Couch to 5k program

I have a confession to make reguarding this Couch to 5K thing.  I get scared every Monday looking at that new schedule.  It just seems so daunting, but when I break it down, it actually becomes manageable. 

That brings me to yesterday and today.  Monday came and I thought of every excuse in the book NOT to exercise.  Then I remembered that I still had Tuesday.  Well, it came and went until about 9:00 tonight.  I realized that I needed to remain accountable.  My question was, "Now what do I do?".  I could have gone outside and ran in the dark, but my wimpiness came out because it was too cold out.  My only option?  Walk and run INSIDE and not on a treadmill.  Don't blink, you read that correctly.  Now, before you think that I live in some enormous house, I don't.  I live in a little 1600 sq foot house.

If you know what a caged tiger looks like, then you can actually picture what I looked like running around in my house tonight.  My husband and daughter couldn't stop laughing.  BUT I did it, and I did it all inside.  This is what I learned when I did that....I have no excuses.

With that said....get out and move!  One step in front of the other.

  1. Tatiana-have you ever tried Leslie Sanson walking DVD's? They are awesome!! It's great for cold-which I can't imagine you really have in Arizona-and rain, etc. It doesn't take much space, but you get a good workout! That is if your family leaves you alone during the video!
