5K Monday!

Now through the end of July my goal is to run three 5K a week. So – today I did the first one! I actually did 3.25 miles, since I want to make sure I actually am able to finish the race on the 26th LOL! It took me 46 minutes to do the 5K. About a 15 minute mile. I am quite pleased with that.

I am starting to learn my body patterns during the runs now. The first 1/2 mile feels tiring. Then I get into a groove until 1.5 miles. The I feel tired for 1/2 mile. From 2 miles out I get back on autopilot. I am going to try to create my own mix mp3 to jog to. I like the mindless techno stuff because I don’t pay too much attention to it. My own favorite music I tend to want to hum along or sing with. Problematic while jogging!

Today was a good food day. I checked my weight this morning and I was up 1.5 pounds from last week, but I am sure it is water retention from the 30 mile bike ride. That happened when we went to VT about a month ago as well with that long biking day.

The bulletin boards are becoming very quiet now. I think many people are busy or giving up! I keep posting because those boards are my lifeline a lot of the time. While accountability lies solely within my own self, the external support is much needed.

Today’s stats:

Calorie goal: 1,400 • Consumed: 1,416 • Burned: 440
Net calories: 976
C/P/F ratio: 51/26/23 (yay me!!)
