Hello all you Spark Peoples, hope your all heading for a great weekend and joining some down time from work.
I have had a promising 48 hours. Yesterday, I went for a job interview and it seems hopeful that I got it, so I will soon be back at work. I cant wait I have been home for a bit over 4 months and I am ready to get back to earning some money for the little extras, ie weight loss goodies/rewards! So fingers and toes crossed everything will work out, cause Lord knows that at times employers can be more fickle than our scales. They are going to do what they want.
On to my blog title. So after two days of rest I resumed my 100 minute work out on the treadmill. I am thrilled to report that I have broken a few personal records (PR). The first is I did my fastest 5k time of 66.33 min, just 6.33 to get to my first goal time. Second was I completed my furthest distance with a 100 minutes of 4.72 miles. Finally, since I have started 3 weeks ago I dropped my timed mile from a 24 minute mile to a 20 minute mile. I hope to get to a 19 minute mile by the end of next week. I just need to keep getting faster and faster because my sister and I are planning to run a half marathon next August that is 13.1 miles and it must be completed in 4 hours. Yikes. But, there is not another person in the universe I would want to do that with. Do I hear the echo's of Iron man. lol. Maybe it's a five year goal. hahaha!
But, all new records a side, the best part of my work out today was that it helped me get back my positive attitude before I went off road. The bus did not go off of its route but, I felt like I was going to make a sharp left at any moment. So I am renewed, recommitted and am completely off the crazy bus, well as much as I can be and still be me.
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend!
