Hope most of you are enjoying the long weekend. I am so glad I have an extra day to not get up at 430 a.m.
Some exciting news to tell you all....last night I ran 5km straight. No stopping, no walking. Just running. It took me just over 46 minutes. I have to admit when I got to about 3.5 km I started worry I wouldn't be able to make it and I slowed right down, but I finished and now I know I can do it, I'll aim to go a bit faster those last two kilometres next time.
That marked the end of Week 7 for Couch25K. 2 weeks to go. We start Week 8 tomorrow morning.
I have to come up with a plan to continue running after the program is over, and I've got some thoughts but haven't made a decision yet.
I've also been hiking three weekends in a row in different areas and am loving it. I am not an "outdoors girl". I hate bugs. I hate sleeping on the ground and I hate eating outside, but hiking is different, I love the trees, the colours, the sounds and the trails.
Weight. Well, the scale is not loving me. I am bouncing between 198 and 199.9 the last 7 weeks and am starting to get a bit fed up especially in light of all the activity I'm doing. I am just going to keep going on and try not to get discouraged. Whats the alternative?
Quitting and going back to 250 lbs. Not happening. No way.
