A hot mess?

Sunday, October 16, 2011

This is what I look like after running for 20 minutes (in a freaking row people!). I generally get off the treadmill bright red, panting, hair plastered to my head and legs wobbly.

I love it.

This weekend I ran 25 minutes. The longest I have ever run continuously. EVER. And you know what? I didn't feel like I was going to die. It was tough, sure, but I didn't feel that if I didn't hit the speed button 5 and start to slow down I was going to topple off the back and end up in a heap on the floor. I felt that I could have gone on a bit longer. I felt amazing.

Of course I looked like a lobster but it was worth it!

This is W7 of the C25K plan and all three session simply say 'run 25 minutes'. Bring it on! emoticon

    I look the same - except REDDER! LOL

How did I miss that you are doing C25K? I am doing it again, too! I finished it last November, then re-started around week 5, trying to get a little faster than the dying slug pace I had. I did W7D1 yesterday morning.

Keep up the great work!
