I have a confession (another one)
I didn't run all weekend.
I played Lego Harry Potter instead.
I ran on Friday and made it through and then had every intention of running either Saturday or Sunday...but the little Lego characters drew me in.
Ok, I know it's my fault that I allowed that to happen.
Now enough crap news.
I ran again today. I wanted to do C25K week 1 again because i slacked somewhat last week. So i get home from work and immediately get into a fight with the bread dough trying to make yeast rolls. An hour later, I am covered in flour, have doughy hands, and feel like I Love Lucy in the kitchen...so I decided to just get my butt out of hte house.
I turned on my Endomondo app on my Android and the GPS is out of whack...after i had only gone around the block, it said i had gone a mile and a half and by the time all is said and done, it said i had gone 68.80 miles at 226 miles per hour. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Don't I wish...
All laughing aside, I felt really good when I ran today. I went up a different route and I think I wenet about a mile and a half total in about 18 minutes. I didn't pay attention to time but instead plugged into my Pandora app and just tried to run for most of a song and then rest and then repeat. when i checked, i was finding that I would run for about 2 minutes at a time and then resting for about 60-90 seconds. I did about 4 rounds. Towards the end i found i was slowing down to about 60 second runs and minute long walks. i would have gone around my loop an extra time but my husband came home from work and leashed up the dog and found me about halfway home so I just walked home with them. When i got hom my legs were tired but i honestly felt like i could have kept going tonight which was a first for me.
Tomorrow is a rest day from running/cross training day. In my other life, I am an adult figure skater and Wednesday nights are my nights at the rink. I haven't been on the ice since I started running so I can't wait to see how it affects my speed and agility on the ice.
I am just so happy that I finally feel like I could have kept going on my run tonight. Maybe Thursday or Friday when I go out again, I will up/lengthen the workouts. My goal is to be able to run the vast majority of my mile race on Thanksgiving Day...just so long as I don't finish last.
Now off to see how my yeast rolls turn out...and to clean the kitchen....
