day 16

today’s workout (W6D1) from c25k: brisk five-minute warmup walk. then jog 5 minutes, walk 3 minutes, jog 8 minutes, walk 3 minutes, jog 5 minutes

stats: time 48:45; distance 3.16 miles; calories 459; pace 15:33 (max of 7:04); heartrate average 142, max 177

thoughts: neither fantastic nor atrocious, but done. i felt really slow today, but needed to get it done as there’s a storm coming in tonight.

today was the first day i used a run to work through some emotional issues i’m having. i had a rough day yesterday and still felt really down when i woke up this morning. i spent the run thinking about it and wrapping my head around some bigger things and feel much better now. i used to be a very competitive horseback rider (hunter/jumper) and no matter what was wrong in life, as soon as i got on the back of my horse, i thought of nothing but riding. i never used riding to sort through my issues, so this is brand new territory for me. it felt good.

and hello to my new readers. 🙂
