C25K Report: Week 7

  • W7D1 (Wed)
    • Walk 5, run 25, walk 5 (days 2 & 3 are the same)
    • It’s that awkward time of year when it’s just a touch too chilly for shorts and short sleeves when I head out, but not cold enough for long pants and long sleeves once I get going.  Have compromised with running shorts and a hoodie these last couple of runs.  Seems to be working fine so far.
  • REST DAY (Thurs)
    • P90 Sculpt 1-2
  • W7D2 (Fri)
    • Legs felt a little tired.  Willing to chalk that up to poor sleep thanks to the take-home sleep test I did the night before.
    • Wanted to stop for a walk break at the half-way turnaround point, but pushed through.
  • REST DAY (Sat)
    • P90 Sculpt 3-4
      • Felt like I was having trouble sticking with P90, maybe because I was getting bored with it, so decided to try the Level 3-4 DVD.
      • First three rounds are the same as the three rounds of Level 1-2, except at a quicker pace and with a major increase in push-up and squat reps.  Fourth round is new exercises.
      • Kicked.  My.  Ass.
  • W7D3 (Sun)
    • SUCKED.  Serious DOMS in my legs – particularly my thighs – from the new P90 routine.  Felt like I was fighting for every step.  Made it through, though.
    • Also, if you find yourself wondering the night before a run if you’ve charged your running headphones?  Just charge them anyway.  Made it *almost* all the way out and back before they died.
  • REST DAY (Mon)
    • Actual rest day.  Okay, maybe a walk before dinner.  But that’s it.

This week’s rediscovered running music is Venjan by Hurdy-Gurdy.  Helped me find my zen place at the end of W7D1.  I can’t find it streaming anywhere, but you can check out a snippet here.
