Couch to 5k: recalibrating

runner-19195_960_720I began walking again yesterday, the last day of my vacation.  It felt good to be out on the track again ticking off laps.  I even broke into a trot a couple of times for a 1/2 lap.  In total I tallied eight laps.

Given all the medical situations I’ve been through this summer I decided to recalibrate my workout.  My new plan is to gradually increase the number of laps in my workout to 13, roughly the distance of a 5k run.  Once I get to 13 laps, sometime after the first of September, I will start working in 1/2 lap jogs.  We’ll see how my body handles the workload.  I hope this effort will help me to shed a few more pounds in the process.

The 5k fun run at the end of September is still on my calendar.  I wonder how much of it will I be walking.
