What a lovely run! ^_^
I was running slowly—I am aware of that—but it was lovely. Dark, windy, with a GORGEOUS full moon hanging over the park as I went. It slowly got lower and lower and bigger and bigger as I did my route and part of the joy was just watching it. The clouds were low and wispy, moving quickly, which gave the whole park and eerie sort of silver glow that deepened and lightened as they hid the moon.
Having the music was great for the run as well and, with the extra three minutes—since this was a 28 min run—took me into the car park, a fair bit further than last time. Next week, when I finally do the full 30 minutes, I’ll be able to measure how far I go and then work on slowly increasing the speed and trying to get further each time.
Couch To 5k: Week Eight, Run Three: Complete
Today is Boxing Day, as you probably already know, and a Saturday. I would have done the run yesterday, but there was no way to fit it in with all the running around, family visits and food to eat.
I just want to take a moment to congratulate myself openly on my restraint yesterday too. Yes, I ate a great deal and yes, a lot of it was probably bad for me, but it was nowhere near the quantities I’ve eaten over Christmas Days in previous years and I’m fairly confidence that my weight hasn’t ballooned like it might otherwise have done.
If I make it to town today I’ll do a check-in on the scales and post it so I can check out the rest of the details. I’m really curious to see what my body fat has done compared to my weight as well, since I really can feel that there is significant change in my thighs and stomach.
The new year is coming up and I’m hoping to introduce some changes to this blog and the way I post. I want to give more writing focus to my other projects, without leaving you guys wanting (I know the handful of you who do read are taking something away from my ramblings).
For now, I’m done. Have a good’un and I’ll catch you next week.
