C25K Week 5

I'm still going strong in week 5 of C25K.  It definitely has gotten harder, but I continue to amaze myself with every workout.  Wednesday I had to run for 8 minutes, walk for 5, then run for 8 more.  I was really worried about that last 8, but I did it!  Today I have to run for 20 whole minutes without stopping.  Yikes.  I haven't done that in about 8 years and I've only ever done it once (I once ran 2 whole miles and I think it took 26 minutes--very slow)!  So, we'll see!  If I absolutely can't do it, I'll just keep working up to it and once I can I'll pick up the program from there.

I STILL haven't got back on track diet-wise.  It's frustrating, because I was totally geared up to be good this week, but social plans had us eating out a lot, plus I "had" to finish off the salt water taffy that a friend gave me from a trip to Atlantic City, plus my mom brought a chocolate cake to us when she visited...Sigh.  I'll try again NEXT week (starting today, actually, except for dinner since we have our date night).  Needless to say I haven't bothered to weigh in and at this point I think I'm going to just wait until Halloween morning.
