Weekly Weigh-In & C25K Update

I'm down another .8 pounds--woo hoo! I'm hoping maybe my drop will be slightly bigger this week. I'm itching to get down to my next goal (180) so that I can buy myself a new bathing suit. It'd be awfully handy to get to that weight in time to get my suit for the wedding I'll be attending on Florida's coast the first weekend of June.

I finished Week 3 of C25k and did Day 1 of Week 4 yesterday. I think I am going to try switching to mornings (pre-breakfast, pre-work) for my runs as apparently in spring our city's largest park turns into an mj haven in the evenings. Combine clouds of smoke, smog, high heat, and humidity, and you get one gaspy veggie paparazzo. Still, I made it through the first day of Week 4 . . . until the last 30 seconds. I got a stitch in my side that didn't want to leave, and I walked the last 30 seconds of my last run. I was a bit disappointed and had to remind myself I'm really doing well.

Because really . . . REALLY . . . I still ran HALF A FREAKING MILE at a time.

And tomorrow, I plan to run every bit of the running part.

I CAN do this. And that's pretty damn awesome.

WOOHOO! You're doing great!! I just started Day 1 of Week 1 this morning, so you're my inspiration. Though it's really hard to get up in the mornings, I find it worthwhile becuase you get your workout over with and you get on with the rest of your day. And I have a feeling that new bathing suit is in your immediate future...

Take care,
PSG

You are doing a great job! When I get stitches, I try to change my breathing rate or my speed. Sometimes that helps. Once I did a 4 miler with a mild stitch that wouldn't go away. Talk about agony!
