    Felt run down Monday. Ran this evening with 6R/2W intervals and made good speed despite my dog dragging behind... Ha ha!

    Planning to segue now into C25K week five I think. Next run Thursday.

    Feel like I am overeating as appetite up...

    Segued into C25K at week 5 today. Ran 8:3w:8 R: 4 W: 4 R. Then walked and skipped up to 5K distance. Last Sat did 5k distance in 52:30. Today 49:30 so I am pleased with drop. Will run same on Sat.

    On Sat I will have been running for 2 weeks. I think I will finish C25K at the end of the month. Then I will maintain thru Aug. in Sep will start bridging to 10K . Oct I start Galloway Princess training. Hopefully my times will keep dropping as my running time kicks in and my endurance builds. Not sure about interval Galloway system, but will need to determine this in the fall for sure. Guess that might help TM boredom.

    I did run on Sat. I was up early and it felt like a good run/walk 5K but I did it in 56 minutes. Yuck! 5W: 8R:3W:8R:4W:4R: walked up to 5K with some running exercises thrown in. Not sure why it was so lengthy. But in the end this is all just training and building endurance. The most important thing is doing it.

    So today I am going to be running 20 minutes all at once. Due to the heat I will be on a TM at the gym!

    Did a 5k distance Friday in 47 min. Able to run almost 20 min straight then intervals. Yay! Working and striving to grow that time.

    Still doing well. Last Sunday did my neighborhood 5K distance in 42 min. This is hilly and made it up one hill and was able to walk a minute up a few others... Reserved POFQ this week for our stay. Yikes. Never paid such for lodging. Thankfully am not planning to go to parks so will save on tickets.

    Still running 5K at about 40 min. First 5K race next Sunday. Have started going to gym to work on weights... No weight loss. Need to focus on my diet. Would be nice to get all 3 things going at once - running, weights, diet...

    Picked up my race packet today for Sunday's 5K.


    Ran 5K today in horrible humidity. Hung tight and knocked it out at about 40 min.

    Signed up for 2 10Ks in Nov.

    As for weight, trying to do MFP each night at 8, then stop eating for night.

    Ran 5K on Friday. My first run in the rain and in the dark. It was not cold and it was nice. 42 minutes which is fine since I had to slow down and watch my steps a bit more than usual.

    Today I went to the gym for an hour. 25 min cardio and 35 min weights.

    Doing better tracking on MFP too.
