C25K:W1D1, W1D1 again and again! (And my garden!!)
Tuesday, June 21, 2011
So, I ran a few more times and I still can't complete the first week of the couch to 5k program. The biggest reason was that it was just so hot last week! I was dying of heat so I just couldn't do it. I have been active in other ways the last week. I love my Kinect!! It seems like it will be cooling down the next few days, so I will keep trying!
I planted a garden this year, for my first time ever! Today when I went to see it, I had 3 baby cucumbers (and inch or so long), some tiny little tomatoes, 2 little green peppers, and a little zucchini. I am really happy! I also have tons of lettuce. There are some bean plants, asparagus, herbs, hot and red peppers, and leeks also. I can't wait until I can harvest some veggies!
I've been much more active lately than usual and I feel so good. I made it up 4 flights of stairs without being out of breath. Less than 2 months ago, when I first started school, I could barely breath by the time I got to class. I also went on an hour long bike ride and I was still in good shape by the time I got home. To put it into perspective, this bike ride was 13 km and I felt great. Last month, I biked 4 km and I was dead tired at the end!
I feel great!
