So I've been training for a 5K on December 5th (following the C25K program). I haven't been following the program exactly, but have been trying to increase the distance that I run each week.
On Friday night, I decided to see if I could complete a 5K without walking. I made it in 42 mins and 27 seconds! Because the route is a loop from my apartment, it isn't exactly a 5k but actually a bit more at 3.22 miles.
I felt so great about it I spammed facebook, twitter, and my LJ account
Last night, I wanted to see if I could lower my time and I finished the same 3.22 mile loop in 40 mins and 15 seconds.
The other good news on the health front is that I'm finally in new territory after staying at a plateau for a while. I'm now down to 264 and just 24 pounds away from getting rid of the "obesity" label and just being overweight.
I can't wait till I can say I'm just fat!
Starting weight/ Current low weight/"redline" weight
Total: 267.6 pounds.
I will do the Komen 60 mile walk for breast cancer again this year!!
Next goal is 175: Pounds from goal = 4.2
