    Default Beorn's couch to 5(0?!?!)k thread

    First day today.
    Pushed myself to get the gym even though it was past 10PM as I've been meaning to start this for several weeks. Glad I did. Everything went great and I feel great. Looking forward to future training.

    Here's my plan:
    http://cnycap.org/wp-content/uploads...ouch-to-5k.pdf

    Goals:
    5k in 9 weeks
    10 miles in early fall
    50k in mid-winter

    I'll be doing other cross-training with yoga and lifting and fill you in on all of that later when I start to work out a consistent routine.

    Right now I'm thinking:

    M run/lift
    T yoga
    W run/lift
    TH yoga
    F run/lift
    S long hike/yoga
    Su rest

    I'm inclined to do just a simple push/pull/legs routine with just 3 or maybe 4 exercises each day when I lift since I'm just getting back into things after letting myself get way out of shape.

    Ok second day of working out went great. Some random pains in knees, feet, and calves at the beginning of my workout, but by the end I felt great. Definately looking forward to working in yoga next week as I'm hoping it will help me deal with the stiffness from lifting.

    Diet-wise I'm not going to worry much for a few weeks just drinking more water and trying to be slightly more conscientious. Steadily I'll probably just focus on eating more veggies and less sugar. I'll only start calorie counting if my weight-loss plateaus which shouldn't happen for a while if I keep to my routine.

    Week one done. Didn't quite get the long run/hike I wanted in due to crazy flooding in my area, but happy to get my workouts in and complete the 5k training for the week.

    Finished week two of couch to 5k.
    Didn't get my long run/hike in but I'm not really worried about it at this point.
    I can definately feel that I'm improving during my workouts which is pretty encouraging.

    Started week 4 today. This was my first day off the treadmill and on the road. Definately not nearly as easy as the treadmill, but I got it done.
