Week 4, Day 1

Week Four!

Yeah, it was more like "attempted" than "completed" so I'm going to redo W4D1 again on Saturday. I've been off plan for two weeks because of a cold/sinusy thing, and just in the last few days felt like running wouldn't make my eyeballs pop out of my head. Since it had been two weeks, I was gentle with myself, and ended up walking several times in the runs. The workout for this day is that the runs are 3 minutes/ 5 minutes / 3 minutes/ 5 minutes and I got through most of the first three runs, but the last was rough, because the sun peeked out of the clouds and started warming up my already warm body and I felt gross.

This is also the first time I've run without my fleece, and I miss pockets! I tried an armband for my iphone, but I honestly hate it. It didn't feel secure on my arm so I held it in my hand, to get it in the armband I had to remove it from my regular case, and then it just felt awkward.  I also missed having a pocket for a key, and for my inhaler (while I was fine, I just feel better having it on my person) so maybe I need to find some other solution for holding the stuff that makes me feel confident out there.

And finally, after discussing "events" last time, it came up at a wellness meeting at work that we may get together a team for the Komen Race for the Cure, but that the person who always helped in the past has left… so I volunteered. So maybe I am "training for an event," even though it's three months away, it would be an interesting one to do since breastfeeding was such a motivator to land me in this spot, now. 

Distance: 2.18 miles (I walked a few minutes more than the 28 of the workout)
Average: 16:18 /mile
Fastest Pace: 10:25 /mile

Walk Pace: 16:41
Run Pace: 13:45
