Couch to 5K: Week 7, Day 2

By Skip

As I was planning today’s run I knew I had to run a little bit more today for a couple of reasons. Reason number one, I consumed waaaaaay too many calories yesterday for some reason. I am usually pretty good but I guess this whole Girl Scout Cookie “Season” is throwing me off!

Second, I didn’t get a chance (or didn’t feel motivated is more like it) to get on the stationary bike last night to work off the above mentioned calories.

And finally, my sister and her husband are coming into town tonight so over the next few days we will be eating good as well….. The more I can take off now, the better!

Here is what was planned for today:

  • Five-minute warmup
  • Run for 25 minutes
  • Five-minute cooldown

I officially stopped timing my warmup and cooldown walks and stopped including them in these stats…. It was throwing my “numbers” way off. I will still include the dedicate walks when they happen.

After I was logging in today’s run I realized that if would have run just a little bit further (.2 miles more) I would have logged my personal best for the 10K! Duh!

Next time I log a run in, it will be from Jupiter, Florida. Heading up there to do some geocaching this weekend. It will be fun to run someplace new instead of the same old routes.

About

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
