I finally made it to 25 minutes (running) again on Wednesday. It took 2 1/2 weeks to get there but I finally got there. That officially wrapped up Couch to 5k, Week 7 Day 3.
Tonight, aka Friday, aka two days later, I really did not want to run. I am PMSing and I want to eat everything. I guess it's the one time of the month that I do want the bad stuff. I was so tempted to stop at McDonald's and get fries instead of going for a run, but I didn't. I got to my mom's and I still didn't want to run. I didn't have my iPod, a good excuse I thought, but my mom said "go run". So I dragged my ass and got changed, put on my runners and headed downstairs.
My shins screamed from the beginning. I told myself "just 15 minutes" when I had already been running for 11. By the time I checked the treadmill timer again I had been running for 21. Well then, I can make it to 25 again, right? Yup! Not only did I make it to 25 minutes, but I kept going and made it to 28 minutes. That means I have successfully completed Week 8, Day 1 also!!!
