Today I did week 4 day one of the couch to 5k program! I'm trucking along. It still felt good even though the total minutes run was almost double compared to last week. I am running according to minutes rather than distance, but if I run about 10 min/mile (which may be a little optimistic) then I did about a mile and a half today! With some walking breaks of course. In fact, since I had the C25K walking breaks, plus the 5 min warmup, plus the 5 min cool down, plus the walk back home afterwords I walked about 28 minutes today in addition to running 16 minutes. Not too shabby.
It was also sunny today, finally. This is the 4th day I have seen the sun since I got to Massachusetts on June 1st. Its beautiful! It was great to soak it up while I ran even though I had to spend the rest of the day inside working. Unfortunately its supposed to storm again tomorrow and be rainy all weekend. :-(
On the bright side there are only 42 more days before I get to go home to beautiful, wonderful, more-awesome-than-I-knew California! I can't wait to get home and sleep in my own bed and drive my own car and see my boyfriend and all of my other friends! It's going to be awesome... I just gotta get there. And by that time I will be able to run 30 minutes straight 3 days a week. I just gotta get there.
