So after I wrote my blog yesterday I decided I wanted to start Couch to 5k again. If you're unfamiliar with the program, it's a really great 5k training program that gets you running a 5k from nothing in 9 weeks. Since there was a little light left and I didn't finish my Jillian Michaels workout with Claire, I decided I'd go for a run and start. The running came easier than it had in a long time. I felt like I had to wait a really long time to run and had to stop after too short an interval. This is great. I'm in better shape than I've ever been at the beginning of C25k.
When I got home, I felt very motivated so I found a 5k to run. There aren't a lot of races in October, but I found one on October 8th. That's two months from today, so not quite the 9 weeks C25k suggests so I'll have to squeeze in an extra 3 workouts somewhere in the mix. If you live in the Minneapolis area and you'd like to run a 5k with me, here's the link: 8th Annual Historic Riverfront 5K Run.
Let's get to the weigh-in.
Gross. That's a gain of 3.3 pounds. It doesn't matter though. I'm done with this gaining B.S. This is my low (high?) point. I can only go up (down?) from here. I'm declaring my slump officially over.
