- C25K Week 5 day2
- Hundred pushups week 4 day 2. Today was so hard. I broke out in sweat while doing pushups. Check my progress here.
- Bodyrock Sexy Satisfaction workout
I woke up early to go jogging (i.e. 6 AM early). Week 5 of C25k is very daunting because the whole program, I've had a chance to take walk breaks. Suddenly, on day 3, I need to run for 20 minutes straight. Well, today, I ran for 8, walked for 5, and ran for 8 more. The first 8 minutes were no sweat. I was almost dying the last 8 minutes. It wasn't muscle fatigue. It's more like serious huffing and puffing. I wonder if this is an indication that my V02 max can use improvement. Although I am quite pleased with my running pace today (10:36 mile), one of my goals in life is to run an under 10 minute mile. To do so, I'm thinking I need to improve V02 max, which can be done by sustaining a fast run for 2-5 minutes as indicated by this Runner's World article, which is what I did today. I think what this article is saying is that I need to push myself for a sustained period of time. Now, I have no idea how I'm going to do on Saturday, when I need to run for 20 minutes, but I hope today's 8 minute of sustained V02max will help me have more endurance.
I started doing the Sexy Satisfaction workout. I actually completed two rounds. I don't know why I quit. Actually, yes I do. This workout is filled with pushups. The press and kick is pretty tough. I think I'm going to try again today. After attempting 2 rounds, I went to look at myself in the mirror and saw what appears to be the beginnings of a six pack trying to appear from a layer a fat. :) Weird, but cool. I guess Bodyrock really works.
