The Run Diaries: 10k week 1

So week 1 of my 10k training consisted of only 1 real run. But that’s cool because I pretty much nailed it. imageIt wasn’t a straight run- because this is a beginner program and I may have thrown up on my shoes if it was. Instead it was run-walk intervals. To be honest I’ve tried to stay away from the old run-walk interval because I find myself just counting down the seconds until I get to walk again. And yes, I did some of that during this run, but I also enjoyed the running bits, so that’s kinda cool.

Masked from the run, I also did a lot of walking and some swimming one morning (for cross training)- and I had totally forgotten how much of a workout swimming is! The only bummer is that I can’t wear my Fitbit while doing it so I don’t get to see what my heart rate does.

This is how my week lookedimage

Overall I feel good about how week 1 has gone, and I am looking forward to seeing how things progress.
