day 27

today’s workout (W9D3) from c25k: brisk five-minute warmup walk, then jog 3 miles (or 30 minutes).

statstime 1:45:25; distance 6.56 miles; calories 1046; pace 16:04 (max of 7:57); heartrate average 145, max 181

thoughts: hallelujah! i completed couch to 5K! it wasn’t easy for this super out of shape kid, but i did it! super pumped, as clipart so obviously conveys. when i started the program, i was definitely emphasizing the couch portion of the title. and now, though i’m not fast or a super awesome runner, i am running 5k distances! i am so incredibly excited.

yeah that's clip art!

thoughts on today’s run: today wasn’t an easy run. apparently my body quite likes the (at least) one day rest between runs, but if i wanted to finish this week, it had to happen this morning because of the impending storm. so i was pretty pokey. don’t care though–no cheating, no worries.

as for the future: i don’t know yet. i know i’ll be working on my speed in the upcoming weeks. i’m looking forward to being off a training plan as i can then do what i feel i need to do. after i feel comfortable with my speed, i think i’ll do the bridge to 10K program. lots to think about, so we’ll see. i’ll definitely keep you updated.

    Great job! How about you come out to Chicago on March 25th and run the Shamrock Shuffle with us? It’ll be fun. 🙂
