Week 2 of C25k and new clothes

Sunday, November 01, 2009

I tried out my new Under Armour fleece pants and a tech cold weather running top today. It's sunny, about 48, and a little breezy. I'm doing week 2 of couch to 5k which means alternating 90 seconds running and 2 minutes walking. I'm pleased to say my new cold weather clothes definitely are going to do the job. I was plenty warm, so 20s to 30s should be quite comfortable if I add a jacket, gloves and head band.

It's such a beautiful day that the workout didn't even seem like much effort. I kept walking until I'd gone just over 3 miles because I just wasn't ready to stop. Fortunately my husband was enjoying his walk too and didn't mind that I kept him there longer than the 30 minutes we had planned. He walked with me for the first 5 minutes before I started jogging and then for a few minutes at the end.

We both enjoyed the colorful leaves that are still on the trees. A lot have been knocked off by wind and rain, but there are still some up. I love days like today.

    Awesome!!! Congrats! I love fall and I am just starting the C25K program for a second round tomorrow - hoping for gorgeous fall weather to prevail for several more weeks here?! I did the C25K program a few weeks ago and ran most of it on my treadmill - so I am in need of some cold weather running gear too...

    Keep at it! You're doing great!
