Podrunner Intervals Level 1 Complete

Monday, April 6th, 2009

I’ve managed to complete a workout doing Podrunner Intervals Level 1 Week 10, which was the graduation mix. I did it on the treadmill and covered 3.85 miles in the 35 minutes of running. That’s a WHOLE lot better than I was doing the second or third week of Januar when I started all this!

I’m still having some aches in my knees, and now it almost feels like shinsplints. I feel like I need to take some time off the running to let my body heal, but at the same time I want to keep it up. Very weird. The elliptical and stationary bike just don’t seem to cut it and I almost feel guilty if I skip the running.

With the weather warming up, I need to transition to running outside. I couldn’t complete my first attempt at Week 10 when I ran it outdoors. Probably need to go back to week 4 or 5 of Podrunner for doing the outside workouts.

Throughout all this, I haven’t lost any weight. Doesn’t make sense. If I keep at it, hopefully my body will get tired of the fat and start shedding it!
