I updated my plan post along the way, so you can kind of see how last week went.
Thursday I did do morning yoga but did not do evening yoga, even though I'm sure I should have. I also had a totally lazy Friday.
Saturday morning, however, I got up early and did the "First Day to 5k, Week One" podcast. It kicked my ass. Really? In less than a week?
Distance: 3.40k. Time: 27:43. Pace: 8:10 per km.
OK, so my pace was a lot faster than the last time. I'm guessing this has a lot to do with the asskickingness. Also, I did not have "quick burning calories" on board before this session. I keep reading about how that's a good thing, about 100 calories, some quick fuel to get your muscles started. I drink a cup of chocolate almond milk, typically half hour to an hour before I work out. I've noticed that I tend to feel a lot better when I do that.
This morning I got up and did the podcast again.
Distance: 3.85k. Time: 29:27. Pace: 7:39 per km.
The pace is faster for this one because I actually ran all of the "running" intervals. Saturday morning I really did not.
This week's plan:
Monday: 5k Intervals - Week One, Day Two; Yoga
Wednesday: 5k Intervals - Week One, Day Three
Saturday: 5k Intervals - Week Two, Day One
Tomorrow I'll have the Tuesday Morning Scale Check. I wonder what kind of damage Period Eating did to my numbers. Eek! Nothing to do but buckle down moving forward and plan, plan, plan!
