I am writing this from the floor of my front entryway. I went for my run, came home and did some planks, and have since decided I never need to get off the floor. It’s just so… UP, up there, and so nice and flat down here.
Good news: c25k week 7 is finally done. I feel like I’ve been on week 7 forever. I looked over my progress chart and I can see why. The last run of week 6 is also a 25 minute run, and I do day 3 of each week twice. So I have been doing 25-minute runs since December 14. That’s 3 1/2 weeks! It’s definitely time to move on.
Today I changed how I record my running miles. I’ve been counting warmup walk + run + cool down walk because that’s easiest (no start/stop to mess with my phone when I’m already moving), but I want a better picture of my running pace so today I only logged my running. It means I can’t compare my distance with previous days but that’s ok. I just have a new benchmark: 2.16 miles in 25 minutes for a pace of 11:36/mile. I’m pleased! If I can sustain this for a full 5k my race time in February will be about 35 minutes.
In other news, my hamstrings are sore after RDLs yesterday. Hoo boy. The gym tomorrow will be interesting.
Miles to Mordor: 5.46
C25k week 7 day 4. Next up: week 8!
