C25K: Week 2, Day 3


...and best of all, my 3rd workout this week went amazing! My mind was in a better place in comparison to Monday and I had no issues what-so-ever. :)

Pre-run snack today consisted of a pumpkin/walnut muffin

and an apple. Both which I had at work.

I was especially looking forward to my run tonight because I would get to try out my newest addition to my 'gear' - an armband for my ipod. I really needed an armband because I'm not going to stay on the treadmill forever, and I definitely plan on listening to my ipod for all of my runs. Considering I'm pretty broke, I didn't want to fork out the $20 for an armband so I decided to check out ebay and managed to score a perfect one for only $7 including shipping. It even matches my current running shirt! ;)

So, on to my run. Just to change things up a bit, I decided to set the treadmill to the first incline level. I was going to wait a few more weeks before changing the incline, but you know what? I realized, once I'm running outside, the surface won't be perfectly flat! So... I realized I better just start working out with an incline now so it's not such a shock when I get outside. The run was a little tougher, but I didn't really have a hard time with it! By my 4th running interval, I felt like I was just floating along and really wanted to keep going!

Today's stats:
Distance: 2.05 miles (3.30km)
Calories burned: 203
Time: 31:40 (was listening to a good song at the end)

Today's run didn't finish there though! My parents went away to Florida today and they have my grandmother staying at their house to watch their puppy Charlie. Since my grandmother can't walk him too far, I put on some warm clothes and took the little guy for a walk before going home.

He was still hyper after our walk, so we then played with snowballs in the backyard.

And then I got a nice kiss before going home. ;)

All in all, a great end to week 2! So darn excited to start week 3 on Saturday!
