For my final workout (!) of C25K (which I actually used the Ease into 5k App that used to follow the C25K plan exactly, but is now slightly modified…), I decided to run from my neighborhood to my parent’s house. It went really well, since I generally don’t mind running on the highway (despite a few larger hills), but the wind was against me the whole way! The run went pretty well and I felt pretty good. My ankle held up during the run and I was able to even complete my plank for the day (2.5 minutes…ugh!!!) while I was there.
It is my Dad’s birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!) and he was headed out to my sister’s house, so I caught a ride back to my house :) Now, I’m sticky/sweaty and enjoying my coffee as I peruse the tumblr. I suppose I should shower at some point, but I’m contemplating doing a bit of gardening and then taking a nice bath before the husband and kiddo get home this afternoon…relax a bit, eh?
Before I go, I will say this: I’m really glad to be done with C25K. I love the program and It got me back to being able to run 3 miles again. Goal accomplished. Now, however, I’ll be able to start doing “training” runs for my 10 miler in September. I won’t feel locked in to a certain run because my app says so. I will have my training plan, but I’m going to shake it up with regular runs and if I want to do intervals one day, I am going to do intervals that day. Know what I mean, Vern?
Alrighty. Everyone have a glorious Sunday! *mwah*
