C25k - Week Six - Day Two
I am fierce and triumphant.
I really love this program, it just...it helps me feel so good (even when my legs are buuuurning while running - good burn) I just feel as though I can do anything and accomplish anything that I want and that THA... Read more
C25k - Week Six - Day One
Holy hell it's hot out there. It's like 90, but the humidity was below 40% so I went out. Wow.
I've been learning a lot the last few weeks that sweat does not feel good in my eyes.
I know last week I was all waa-waa why do I have to do... Read more
C25K - Week Five - Day Three
It’s 80% humidity outside right now and ever single centimeter of my body is glistening with sweat right now. I am exhausted. I am triumphant.
Today, I ran for 20 minutes straight. Actually, a little more than 20 minutes since I thought she... Read more
C25K - Week Five - Day Two
Oh holy wow. I waited a little after the run to write this, but that was really intense. For those that don’t know, today’s run was 8 min running, 5 min walking, then another 8 min running. I ran for 8 consecutive minutes today!
I’ll admit... Read more
C25k - Week Five - Day One
Well, I have been a busy girl today.
I started my new job today and it went really well. I’m also feeling less guilty about planning to leave in less than two months for my move because it’s a huge company and they’re pretty used to temps c... Read more
C25K - Week Four - Day Three
I write to you as I am drenched head to toe in sweat. It is hot and rather humid out, but I did my run today. I actually think this was the best run of week four, but maybe it’s more than the run that did that.
I didn’t do my run yesterday,... Read more
C25K - Week Four - Day Two
My right foot hurts a lot. The bottom on the outside, it just hurts. I’ve never had it happen before and it’s making me second guess these liners I put in my shoes the other day.
My mom got some Dr. Scholl’s liners for her work shoes, but y... Read more
C25K - Week Four - Day One
Oh my god.
Oh my god.
Are you aware that before week 4, the total running time of any of the previous runs does not exceed 9 minutes? Are you aware that in week 4 that number gets bumped to 16?
Oh my god.
I did it. I got thro... Read more
Week Three - Day Three
So I was a little late out the door because I got caught up listening to a Rachmaninoff symphony. My nerdniness really knows no bounds, considering I stayed up last night till about 2:30 listening to Rachmaninoff piano concertos. Apparently, I'm... Read more
Week Three - Day Two
Aloha compadres! Comment ça va? That was what, three languages? Three languages for week three! Woo. Okay, can you tell I’m on an endorphin high?
Today’s run went really well. The temp was down, I was hydrated and stretched and just ready t... Read more
Week Three - Day One
Sorry! I forgot to cross-post these, so I've got two today and a new one coming tomorrow.
Hellooo! So having an extra day off was nice and I’m definitely glad I wasn’t running in yesterday’s heat or its storms. I started week three today... Read more
Week Two - Day Three
Woohoo! I made it through week two!! I had a lovely run today. I was certainly pushing myself, but I wasn’t dying or feeling super overexerted afterwards. I’m just riding high on endorphins.
The weather was actually quite nice for a run, ar... Read more
Week Two - Day Two
I really did not want to run today. Physically, my body wanted to run, but mentally, I just did not want to do it. Last night was the season finale of Glee and, yes, I realize I care way too much about the show to let it have this kind of effect... Read more
Week Two - Day One
I know it’s only week two, but I’m somehow getting the feeling that day one of each week is going to be quite challenging.
It honestly, really wasn’t that bad today. I’m glad I waited till the evening since it cooled off a little though it ... Read more

Week One - Day Three
Note to self: Do not go for a run when it is both a) sunny and b) over 80 degrees outside. Granted, my other option was to run during a thunderstorm and since I don’t fancy getting struck by lightning, I chose the heat.
This leads me to bel... Read more
