Week 1: Run 3

Today totally sucked...Maybe because it was a Saturday?!?! I'm going to post a picture of my favorite food, sprinkles, to make myself feel better. And yes, sprinkles most definitely ARE a food.

Week 1 workout: Brisk five-minute warm-up walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes. Five minute cool down walk.

Week 1: Run 3
Distance: 1.96 miles
Walk pace: 3.2-3.5 mph
Run pace: 5.0-5.9 mph
Calories burnt: 201
Terrain: Treadmill

How was your run? Today was brutal. I think it was harder for several reasons. One, all of the good TVs were taken so, I was forced to watch an infomercial about a shaving product and a football game. Ugh. Second, I forgot to stretch until run #7 and by then I figured it was too late to do much good. Third, my heart rate was exceptionally high today. I walked run #8 because it was higher than the treadmill recommended and I needed to get it just a little bit lower. And finally, I was in lots and lots of ankle and knee pain. That doesn't help. But...on a good note, I'm proud of myself for going on a Saturday and I burnt the most calories thus far!
