So, Saturday I finished week 7 of C25K with a 25-minute run. It was harder than usual because I ran with a friend in her neighborhood and there were more hills, plus we were trying to converse. But I did it without too much problem. Then, it was time for week 8 day 1 on Monday, a 28-minute run. I was debating just sticking to the program and running for 28 minutes, or going for 30. Well, I did 32! I was going along, approaching the 30-minute mark and just decided to go for an even 2.5 miles, which ended up being about 32 minutes. Then on Wednesday, I set out to do just another 32, or maybe 35. But I was feeling so good that I just kept going until the end of my playlist, which was 41 minutes! I was outside so I don't know how far I ended up going, but it must've been about 3 miles, give or take. So, screw weeks 8 and 9 of C25K. I think I've officially graduated. AND, I signed up for my first 5K! Eek.
It's on June 3rd.
I didn't lose any weight this week, thanks in large part to the carrot cake cupcakes that practically threw themselves into my cart at Costco.:) Yum.
