First run down

This is what it looks like outside. And as much as I would prefer to run outside, I'm not into this. So it was the treadmill. I did Couch to 5k, Week 1 Day 1. That is 5 min warm-up, 60 secs running, 90 secs walking - 8 times, then a cool down. So you really only run for 8 minutes. I had issues with the sound on my phone though so I ended up walking for 15 mins before the first run segment. But overall it felt really good. I focused on relaxing the legs and letting gravity carry me. I'm definitely a whole lot stronger because of Crossfit. I ran at 5mph and that wasn't very fast at all. I think I can go faster and tomorrow I will. Later I want to stretch out good, maybe do some yoga. I would really like to get a yoga pillow at yogadirect but for now I'll do without. Off to do some chores today.
