It Runs, it Passes People, it Gets Passed Too!

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Today I ran past my first too runners that didn't turn out to be pregnant. These two men were jogging, and for over an entire lap (almost a lap and a half) I was ahead, then I went to my walking minute and they immediately passed me, I don't know if I slowed down, if they sped up, if they didn't want to be rude by passing me back, not sure, but in two seconds they were ahead of me again. :-P

Today I went 5.08 miles in 70 minutes. But my breathing was easy the whole way, and I didn't really struggle at all. I just need to get used to running faster!

I'm hoping this means I can run 5 miles in at least 65 minutes, and run 6.2 in at least 85 minutes. My goal for this 10k run is 90 minutes, however I think I can do better than that!

As for my next venture, I think I'm gonna go back to some 5k training after this is up. These hour long sessions are getting crazy long. So much working out. I get a little bored, it's definitley just endurance over fitness after a while, I think 40 minutes is probably that fine line.

Tonight I had steak. So tomorrow is going to be a lower calorie day. Yesterday I did eat 3 of my chocolates :-( Still under calorie, and it was a serving size, but I'm definitley sticking to the 72% chocolates instead of these creme filling ones I wanted to try out... I tried out each flavor last night. fail.

Steak?? What is steak?? lol If I have one more piece of chicken I'm going to sprout feathers!! I need to eat a piece of steak this week!
Way to go on control!!
If it's dark chocolate, it isn't quite as evil as milk chocolate.
Everything in moderation!
I agree with the whole fitness/endurance thing. I set the timer for 40 minutes on the recumbant bike, but once I'm at 20, I lower it to 30 again, plus another 5 for cool down. $0 is just a bit tooo much. I need to improve my stamina, I guess, although a 30 minute ride listening to Party Rock and Gangnan Style is not an easy ride!!
