I did my last day of Week 1 in the c25k training program today, and I did all of the runs at my 10 minute mile pace. The running part felt good, I didn't feel like I was getting tired, or out of breath, but when I would go to the walk part I was exhausted from the get-go. Maybe that is to be expected? I don't know.. I was thinking about maybe running outside today with Brandon, but then it started to snow and I was walking around downtown in the cold already. Running outside just wasn't in the cards. I hopped onto my trusty treadmill, and it shocked me! Literally. Every time I touched the railings/handholds the bugger shocked me! Maybe that was worked into the design so people wouldn't cheat by holding on? On the bright side, my hands didn't get all tingly/itchy/painful like they did on Saturday during my run, so that makes me feel better. I wonder why they did that...
I also did some strength training and yoga. Boy will I be sore tomorrow. At least it will be satisfying. I'm not sure if you noticed, but I put a countdown timer to my first race of the year. It seems like its a long ways away, but it definitely isn't. I hope we're all ready.
On a more random note, I bought markers yesterday to use for this journal I'm keeping about all of the races I've completed. They are "Crayola Pipsqueak Skinnies" and they are the cutest markers I've ever seen! I looked at the names of the colors, like Kitten Gray, Inchworm Green, and Small Potatoes, and I found that one was misspelled! "Madarin Orange" is what it says on the packaging, but the marker says Mandarin Orange. I'm considering sending in that snippet to see if I get a response? Yes or no?
I also found a race that I really want to do. But I'm not quite ready for it. The Disney Princess Half Marathon. How fun would that be?! Once I can afford to travel to Disney World and do this, it will definitely be done.
