C25K - 5 days later

Last Thursday I finished week 1 of the Couch to 5K program and was extremely pleased with myself.  Then things went downhill.  The shoulder hurt bad.  The weekend came.  Party on Sunday. Monday - slothday...blah, blah, blah......  So today I was determined to get back on the horse. I want to run. I love running in  races.  I love the feeling of accomplishment that I only get from doing races.  I love it....  So I laced up my shoes and headed out.  I started Week 2 which is 90 seconds of running and 2 minutes of walking - 6 times.  It was awesome.  The first interval or two were tough but once I got rolling it was all good.  Love that feeling.....  I did a total of 2 miles in 30 minutes.  That does not sound like much but consider this;  5 minutes walking to warm up and cool down.  That leaves only 20 minutes running time.  6 intervals of 90 seconds running and 120 seconds walking.  That gives a total running time of 9 minutes and 11 minutes walking.  So covering 2 miles in that time is really not that bad at all.  It's a place to start. 

Once I got home I sat and made a list of things I need to get done before school starts next week.  That way I won't sit on my butt until Sunday and then knock myself out. I'm off to the showers and then to start on my list.
