Couch 2 5K and KettleworX

Today, I finally made it running three miles without stopping.  I can’t believe I did it and didn’t feel like I was going to die!  I think the Couch 2 5K app on my iPhone is the best thing that I’ve ever done for my running. Since I didn’t go all out and try to get there too fast, I built up my endurance and got there without being discouraged and wanting to quit. It took a little longer for me than the eight weeks it was supposed to because I had things come up and I didn’t get to run on some days, but for some reason I still had the stamina when I started back.  Usually that is not the case with me. Usually if I skip a couple of days, I have to start from the start again.  I still have two more days of Couch 2 5K, but I have no doubts that I will be able to do it with no problem and I should be able to stick with it!!

I also began incorporating KettleworX in to my exercise routine.  I am now on week 2 of the program. Week one cardio had my legs so sore for a week. I kept at it though and now I have completed week 2 of cardio.  It already got harder and I hear that Week 3 is brutal!  I really like the KettleworX program.  The only thing I don’t like is that they used the same videos in the editing if it was the same exercise. I get tired of hearing the same stuff come out of the guy’s mouth each time.  But, aside from that it is a really good program. I also think it is helping me with my running because I’m getting stronger through the KettleworX program.  Did I mention that with warm up and cool down, the whole tape is 25 minutes!?  I love that it’s not too time consuming!!

  1. Go you for 3 non stop miles. Definitely work on the endurance first, Speed will come with time.

  2. We have something in common, I completed the c25k programme earlier this year and I follow the Kettleworx program. I know what you mean about the editing.

    1. How long have you been doing KettleworX?

      1. I did about 5 months of it, then had to stop due to a broken ankle had a rest from it and started again last week. Running has been the main part of my fitness program. I started the KB’s again to strengthen my core.

      2. That sounds a lot like what I want!!

  3. Let’s go running! Lake Pflugerville?!
