Exercise Milestone

Monday, June 23, 2014

Uually when I run it is in intervals.
Run, walk, sprint, power walk.
My longest "sprint" was about 15 minutes.

Yesterday I decided randomly to run (jog) a whole 5k.

I DID IT!!!!

My time was longer though than some of my interval sessions.

It took 39 minutes.

This is because in order to make sure I could sustain it I was going about 12.45 minute per mile.
Or about 4.8 milers per hour,

What drive me crazy is trying to track this in Spark People.
According to them the slowest you can run/jog is 5 mph.
-sigh-

I ended up logging 30 minutes at 5mph and 10 at 4mph (fair because after I finished I still walked home so my total work out time was likely closer to 45 minutes or more anyway).

I really like the tracker but I wish it had a few more speeds in it.

I am still not really managing to re-shed weight. (190 lbs this morning)

I am not going to ignore the scale but I am trying not to over focus on it.

My calorie intake is still not as low as it should be. I am working on that.

    That is awesome!!!! Congrats! In some ways, that is even better than losing weight, because there is so much work that went into building the strength and endurance you needed to be able to rock that run! It will make the weight loss so much more worth it, if you're also building up your fitness! emoticon emoticon
