Hot Chocolate 5K Goal, Virtual 5Ks & NSV's!

Monday, May 20, 2013

Since I cannot afford to do every 5K I want to, I've deceided I'm going to do either a virtual 5K (just me timing a 3.1 mile wog like I would my 5K's) or an actual 5K once per month to keep me motivated.

Why? Other than I want to, most people my size would think I'm nuts, but because to take part in the Hot Chocolate 5K in December a 15 minute mile is required. It was the one 5k I said over a year ago that I wanted to do & again I said it in January.

I looked back on my Noom ap at some of my 3 mile walks & if I take the time of each mile total & divide by three, these are the results.

19.39+20.58+20.56=60.53 minutes divided by 3=20.17666
19.35+18.19+18.10=55.64 minutes divided by 3=18.54666
20.09+20.17+18.17=58.43 minutes divided by3=19.47666
17.41+18.41+17.26=53.08 minutes divided by 3=17.69333
May (today)
16.41+17.27+16.28=49.96 minutes divided by 3=16.65333

I CAN do this. I'm not crazy am I? I don't think I'm nuts & it will help keep me focused.

As for the NSV's I mentioned....

Last year I had to squeeze into a size 3X swimsuit. In April when we went to Lake Havasu this same swimsuit fit comfortably. Yesterday the very same swimsuit is nearly too big! WOO HOO!

The size 3X exercise capris I wore today are baggy in the belly, rear & thighs! I love this pair of capri's but I'll be glad to see them go to Goodwill...very, very soon.
