2 great runs down, 3 more this week!

I have now completed 2 out of 5 runs for this week, both 5km in length.  Yesterday I finished in 34 minutes, today in a personal best of 32 minutes!!!  I made sure to keep my pace nice and steady today, and not slack off when I was feeling tired.  I am getting close to completing 5km in under 30 minutes, then it will be getting my time down to 25 minutes.  I'm not sure if I will be able to bring my pace much lower than that, but will just have to wait and see I guess.

I'm really looking forward to the race in June, I have 6 weeks to improve on my stamina.  I am pumped to work towards a 10km race for August.

Well, I went for a run this morning, the first one all week.  It was a little shy of 5km, but spent the last half with a stitch in my right side. Last week I managed to run 6.4km, which shocked and impressed the hell out of me!  I still have a lot of work to do, but I'm happy with my progress.

I'm thinking that I will start taking the younger two kids out for a bike ride in the trailer Tuesday & Thursday.  I want to increase my workouts again, and think this is a great way to get something in.

I feel like I've kind of stalled with my workouts, I need to push forward again.  I really need to get things moving...

I ran 5k today!

I have officially run 5km!!!!  What a great feeling that was!  I completed that in 35 minutes, which is a fairly decent time, puts my pace at 6:48 per km.  That makes my 3rd run for this week.  I am right on schedule for completing my first 5km race in a decent time in June.  Two months is plenty of time to work on my pace, and even on my distance.

I haven't lost any weight recently, but I'm noticing that my clothes fit differently... loser.  I still want to get down to around 130lbs, see how it feels and looks.  But I'm patient, and willing to take it slow to get there. That gives me a better chance of staying there once I'm down.
