Photo: me in the pink and some friends last Friday.

A week later and DUN DUN DUN!!!
I did it! 5K is in the bag baby!

I completed just over 5K (including my warm up distance) and did it in 37 minutes (including my warm up walk of 5 mins) WOOO! I felt so darn good after that!

It was a push but only because of how overheated I felt again. My breathing, side stitches and muscles were not a problem in the slightest. The whole run felt wonderful in those areas. Just that darned heat! I wish the gym had a fan or two circulating the air a little!

Anyway. I haven't been on in a few days, I've just been busy with life and work. But here I am, I'm still trucking along!! My calorie cycling is still in place in theory but some of my days have been off thanks to various summer events (dinners, parties) I have two to attend this weekend also but I will just continue to make really healthy choices and try not to sweat it!

I'm making an effort to add a few more evening workouts and to bump my running up to 4 days a week again. Cole starts work an hour earlier each morning for the rest of the summer, so that gives me an extra hour to get a run in! On Friday I plan on going to the pool for a swim. I'm also thinking about an ab work goal to 100 crunches/day or something. I hate ab work so I need to make a rule like that! I think it's just what I need to shave off the rest of this tum!!

Aiight, I'm off, keep sparking sparkers!!

    emoticon I came to your page looking to see how you did. Way to go! I have trouble with the heat too. Last night I set out to run 4 miles straight and pooped at 2. I'll try again on Sunday!

    Congrats! That's rad -- I am very impressed.

    And I can't believe your gym doesn't have fans! That's crazy!! My favorite new discovery at my gym was when I got out of my rut of only using the elliptical machine, I discovered that some of the treadmills and stationary bikes had their own personal fans! It is definitely an incentive to use 'em. Maybe you could say something to the gym staff about it? Because seriously, that's crazy not to have something to circulate the air in those places!
