I may not be a winner at weight loss this week...but I DID my first 5k in 6 years!!! I wasn't fast and I walked a lot, but I was hoping to be done in 45 mins and I finished around 44:30!!! It's amazing when you are coming near the clock and know exactly how fast you need to go to make your goal how much fast you can run. I was thinking about it throughout the run and didn't think the final sprint was going to be very successful but boy was I wrong. Sure, I was huffing and puffing, but that was expected since I did push hard. I may try this strategy throughout an entire 5K and maybe that will help improve my time as well! It was kind of like my speed training that I was doing before. But if I applied it to the race I may have some great success! I need to definitely do some more outdoor training but I at least know I can finish and within my timed goals I set :) I have my next race already planned and that is for April 30th! I hope my friend can be there again to cheer me on...that was definitely a highlight of my run! I love her so much :)
Well I need to go chat with the Rec Center people and see about personal training and getting that going. For my birthday, my friend gave me two personal training sessions and I am planning on purchasing 8 more! I think this will really help me lose or at least define my body better! I figure if I go to them they can help me make sure I am doing things correctly and so I get the most out of them as possible. I still have not worked out a very good schedule for working out regularly, but the weather has been so crappy that I don't want to be outside. It was quite amazing that I actually ran the 5K tonight with the wind and cold! I was quite determined though. I need to be that way about everyday runs though and I need to get my bike out too! I really can do this if i JUST DO IT! Always loved that Nike slogan!!!
Well I am tired and I have another long day tomorrow. It should be nice so we should be working! I have a relaxing afternoon scheduled for Thursday. I go get a one hour massage then my hair cut! It should be a great day of pampering :)
