Couch to 5K Revisted

Soooo today I started training for another 5K in November and since I haven’t run in a while, I decided to train with the Couch to 5K regimen, which is pretty doable for me.  I’m not a hardcore runner and I’m really doing it for my own personal goal and hopefully run a better time than the other two 5K’s I’ve ran.  I used my Nike+ iPod and will be using it with my runs.

Here’s today’s workout which started with a 5 minute walk, which was spent walking to the community gym, followed by alternating 1 minute runs and 1.5 minute walking for 20 minutes.  Then I walked all the way back home.

I don’t know about you, but I have to have music when I run. I really wanted to make my own Couch to 5k playlist with cues to run and walk but I was having a hard time with this program I used called Audacity. It just wasn’t working the way I wanted. Then I was thinking, maybe it wasn’t worth it because I’ll probably change my playlists. If you’re interested, here is the playlist of songs I ran to:

As soon as I got home I was starving! My mom made a pretty yummy dinner, which is pictured below:

I had: A baked potato with a small dollop of sour cream, grilled chicken drumstick, 2 pieces of fried tofu and a salad with red peppers and tomatoes with Tony Wu Soy Garden dressing.  This dressing is so good! Yummy dinner! :)
