Yay, I'm home, and back to a regular keyboard and normal sized screen! No more poking at my iphone! I did mostly keep up with the program, but there was one day when we had to get an early start and I wasn't able to run, then jet lag when we got back (was going to run early easter monday- woke up after nine!) but I start week 8 next run so I don't think it matters much. Notes of interest:
1)yes, I did find it a bit easier running on the outer banks- it's completely flat, for one thing.
2)I ate rather like a pig, I'm afraid. Old haunts, old habits, I guess, not to mention that family get-togethers always seem to mean copious amounts of high calorie booze. *In spite of this,* I only gained 100g. This is a bloody miracle. I ate, I mean really lost it, kids. Donuts, cheese, cake, ice cream, you name it. Only gained 100 grams. I am sooooo glad I stuck with the running.
, shall we make a contest of who can run the slowest?
That will be my project when I've finished c25k- to use map my run and see if I can get further and further in 30 min, or however long the last day is... btw, don't let the 20min scare you. I thought "I'll never be able to!" but I did. First time in my life!
, I have map my run. (echo! lol) I'm sure you can set it for miles- mine does km, and a little voice tells me when I've done a km, what my split time was, etc. I really like it, and intend to use it when I'm done to try and get further and further in the same time, and also more duration. Will probably alternate trying to go a little further and a little faster...
, I'm fine with either (same thread or separate threads) but I think it will depend on the numbers. Are there lots of maintainers out there? I suppose if we have finished, we are not c25kers anymore, but otoh, it would be kind of lonely and not a good motivator if the actual c25k thread had only 2 people if we all left... Is there a steady stream of newbies?
And yes, gardening does count as exercise!
Well done, justrunning
! Nevermind it's only 2.5 miles; at the mo, that's what I'm doing in km!
, I'm not planning to run in any races- I'm not competitive ('cept with myself, maybe) and mostly I just love the feeling of schlogging through the forest and looking at the shrooms and trees and stuff. But I do plan to keep running regularly and improving, as I've said above. I wanted to run all my life and never thought I would.
, you're waaaaay faster than I am! I haven't started working on speed, yet!
Something to do when I finish the program... Plus, I'm still 100 pounds overweight, so as that comes off, I'm sure I'll pick up speed.
Hello to anyone else, will see you (prolly Thursday) for *dunt dun duuuuuuuun* Week 8!
Never thought I'd get there, ever.
