I guess this entry is a bit belated in that I actually did the running yesterday, not today, but better late than never.  I seriously considered taking yesterday off, but I'm glad I went, and I'm glad I stuck it out.

I ended up running the full speed I had intended when I started this thing, and for the amount of time the program calls for.  Be proud.  I'm also still running with a 3% incline, which is another thing to be super proud of.  

I am hesitant to move on to week 2, but I do remember that last time I went through this thing I was also hesitant, and then week 2 ended up being easier than week 1, so I'm just gonna keep moving on.  It was those weeks that you are running continuously for 20 minutes where I really struggled on the treadmill, so if I linger anywhere, that's where it'll be.

Tomorrow I'm headed to California for Western Spectroscopy, so I'm going to get up early in the morning to get my run in before I leave.  Then I plan on running on Saturday afternoon.  I know better to kid myself that I'll be able to run while we're at a conference.  If I can, great, but if not, I have a back-up plan.

Here's the stats:
Distance: 1.87 Miles
Time: 31:00
3% Incline on treadmill


  1. So do you move on to Day 6 on Saturday?

  2. Glad you're still going strong. I hit a bit of a bump, but I'm dragging myself back to my feet now!
