running with a cold = no fun

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

So this week, I am repeating week 2 of C25K. Repeating does help me. I think I will be ready for week 3 come monday. I cannot wait to see how well I can do that week. This morning was a little rough due to not being able to breath through my nose. Head colds are no fun at all. I did stick with it. Ran/walk the first mile in 16:03 and the the second mile in 15:25. So in 36 minutes, I ran/walk 2.2 miles. I like the sound of that. I just need to slowly add in that 3rd mile which I will be able to in the next couple of weeks of the program. It helps doing the C25K with someone because they are pushing you and making you finish the day out. My college roommate wants ne to be able to run a half marathon with her next year. It is a long ways to next year, but I think I should be able to do that with her. At least I hope to as long as there is no knee problems.

Overall, I have been enjoying the working out in the morning. I can see a difference on my scale. Just need to pay attention to what I eat and eat in moderation. My pant sizes are changing which is nice. My size 24 no longer really fit. They don't even stay up unless I have a belt on. 22 is feeling loose and I was able to put on and zip uo by size 20 pants. To me that is great progress. I cannot wait to buy smaller clothes because they are definately cheaper than buying the plus size clothes.

    Way to push through and get your run in even with a cold!! I've got the flu and was able to breathe through my nose this morning for the first time since Sunday but decided to give it one more rest day. I'm starting week 3 tomorrow...woohoo :) Keep up the good work.
