Jogging Update

October 21, 2008 at 4:08 pm (Married Life) (, )

Hubby and I are still jogging.  We are advancing very very slowly through the couch to 5k program.  We started out advancing at the recommended rate, but every time we moved up a level we ended up feeling miserable.  So now we spend two to three times as long at each level as the website suggests, and we’re loving it again.

Last night was the best jog we’ve had in ages.  We quit listening to music while jogging a while ago because I found that I was keeping time to the music, even when that wasn’t an appropriate running tempo, and it seemed to be wearing me out too quickly.  So last night we were jogging along when we realized that we hadn’t had to stop our conversation when we switched from our three minutes of walking back to five minutes of jogging.  Needless to say, I’m very proud of us.

I’ve definitely learned that there’s no one-size-fits-all jogging program.  Even though this program is great, it still isn’t perfect for us, and we have more fun by slowing it down.  I figure we’re still out moving two or three nights a week, which is a huge improvement from the couch potatoes we used to be.
