Sounding the WOOT! Alarm
Yesterday I mentioned that I was going to the gym to figure out where I was in my C25K training that had so rudely been interrupted by that awful head cold/sinus infection that I had last week. My plan was to run for 10 minutes and then assess where I stood: should I continue attempting the 25 minute run which is the opening of week 7 or should I revert back to the intervals from week 6, which is run for 10, walk for 3? Well, I felt good at the end of 10 minutes so I kept going. I slowed down once (still running, not walking) at the end of 15 minutes, but I sped back up and kept going for a full 25 minute run. WOOT! I have to say, it felt damn good to be running again, plus to be able to run and not walk. In those 25 minutes, I ran about 1.9 miles, which is okay time. I'm not really concerned about my time just yet. I'd rather be concerned about getting through two more 25 minute runs, and then a week of 28 minute runs before I head off to Spain in a few weeks. I'm so psyched!
