went for a run

Not an official C25K workout, as our schedule's all crazy with Holy Week. But I went out and ran for 22 minutes, and mapped it afterwards. It was almost 2.3 miles, which means I'm running a little less than a ten minute mile, which: yay! That's perfectly respectable, especially considering how hilly my route was, and that it was the middle of the day, in the full sun.

I did about a five minute warm-up and five-mute cool-down too, walking.

Also, this was a similar route to one I took back in the first week or so of the program, when I was walking more of the time than I was running. Really cool to just be able to run the whole thing, without stopping, and go even further than I could be for. That was a really, really nice pay-off for the last few months' work.



  1. Congratulations! I am slowly working up to being able to run more than walk. I once heard that women don't reach their peak for running until their mid-30s, and I plan on taking full advantage of that age!

  2. Hey, that's a great thing to hear!
