My friend and I went out for our morning jog. Since we completed Week 1 of the "The Couch-to-5K Running Plan," we moved on to Week 2. Week 2's routine, which is still a 20 minute program, consists of doing a brisk 5 minute walk and then alternating between a 90 second jog and 2 minute walk. When we got to our usual walking spot, there were a lot of maintenance men working on the site, so we chose a different location - this neighborhood park. I drove around the trail in my car first just to get a feel for the area and to calculate the mileage. Then, off we were.
Oh my goodness was this workout different. I think it was a combination of the extra 30 seconds of jogging and the terrain that did it. The first 90 second jog was entirely uphill! The whole workout I could feel the burn on my legs. If someone is interested in burning off calories, this is definitely the way to go about it. This morning is proof in point that skinny≠ being in shape.
