Fitness: C25K Week 1 Day 3

Well I completed my last run for this week in C25K. My new week starts on Saturday, so I am graduating from 60 second jogging/90 second walking to 90 second jogging/120 second walking. Keep in mind that I am running on an elliptical, which means when I finally am brave enough to hit the pavement, my numbers will be slower.

This run was AWESOME for lack of a better word, or a more descriptive.

I had my fastest mile yet, here it is in real time on Facebook, it looked a little something like this:

It's really hard to type while you are running, fyi.

The other two miles looked like this:

Not only did I break my personal record for a mile, but I also had my longest distance to date. I shattered my previous pace. I rocked it!!

My overall pace ended being 7:23, which shaved 21 seconds off of my pace since my last run!! THREE huge achievements! My pace for just the 5K (3.1 miles) ended up being a whopping 7 minutes and 8 seconds per mile!!

Aren't I awesome??

Now I get it. I get why people run. You see results so quickly. I was the sweatiest I had ever been, ever. I also noticed I did not have to recover my breathing quite as long and my lungs/chest do not burn as much as they did the first time. In fact, I'm breathing normally now. Last time it took me a while to calm down.

I am very tired though.

No audio on the video this time, there were people in the gym with me. I felt a little silly as it was, so I hope you forgive me hehe ;) Do you guys like these stupid videos? Should I keep making them?
