I was a bit bad yesterday. I met my friend J for lunch, but we both had a hankering for some Chinese... and I REALLY wanted some sesame chicken. I figured it was the lunch portion, so I ordered it. Geez! Half the plate was covered in fried rice! I did enjoy my lunch, but at the same time, I don't know how to get myself back on track with the eating. I also think part of the problem is that Aunt Flo is coming in for a visit next week, and the week before, I'm bloated, hungry for starchy bad for me things, and just tired. Sometimes I hate being a girl. That aside, I did go for a 3.6 mile walk with D yesterday. It would have been 4 miles, but I made her turn back early because the cold weather made my bladder act up and I REALLY had to pee.
So, this morning, I woke up and got to the track by 7:15 to start week 2 of C25K. I was a bit nervous about it, as you run for 90 seconds and then have a recovery period of 120 seconds. I was more worried about the 90 second runs though! Surprisingly enough, I did well! I only ended one interval early-- the fourth out of six-- and even then it was only five seconds early. Sometimes I worry that Podcast Dude has forgotten to tell me that it's time to walk again :) Haha. But I'm glad that I had a 95% clean run my first time with the Week Two schedule.
Some of you have commented that you're worried about running outside, that's why you do it in the gym on a treadmill. Can I say... I'm scared of running on treadmills. Seriously, it worries me. I guess I have a picture of America's Funniest Home Videos in my head, with me falling straight off the back of the treadmill. Hence, I prefer to run on something stable and immobile. I can deal with the sun, bugs, various sports teams practicing around me... just as long as I'm completely in control of my pace and not worried about falling off a treadmill going at 6MPH!
As a tidbit... have y'all tried some Fiber One Caramel Delight cereal? If you're a fan of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which surprisingly enough, I'm not, you'll really like this cereal. I like it in spite of that :) It's nice, sweet, and filling. It's definitely my new favorite cereal.
