This morning I finished day 3 of week 4 of the Couch to 5k program! Wow, it has really flown by! I am so excited about the progress I am making and the results I have seen so far! However, week 5 scares me to death! There are 8 minute runs on day 2, which I did this morning with no problem so that is fine. What scares me is day 3! A 20 minute run with no walking breaks! Yikes! On the cool running website it says to repeat weeks if you think you are not ready to move on to the next and I think that Sasha may have mentioned on her blog that she and her husband repeated some weeks. I really don't want to, but if I have to I will. I want to move forward in this program but you have to remember that just 4 weeks ago I wasn't exercising at all, so 20 minutes is a huge deal!
Also, to anyone who reads this before 6 pm central time today, I need your help. Hubby and I are going out to eat with some friends tonight. We are meeting them at a local Mexican restaurant. I am trying to not eat a lot of calories today so that I don't blow everything I have accomplished so far in just one night. But I am also trying to decide what to order. I know that cheesy dishes are off limits as well as refried beans and rice. I was thinking that I would order the chicken fajitas and tell them not to bring the cheese,beans,tortillas to the table. Then I could just eat the chicken and the veggies it comes with along with the pico de gallo and the guacamole. Does that sound good or not? If anyone has a better suggestion let me know! Thanks in advance for any help!
