C25K: Week 4, Day 3

Week 4 is complete!!!!

...and I cheated a little bit! but in a GOOD way!

Is it bad that this program is feeling like it's starting to take too long?? I suppose I take that as a good thing and proof that the program actually works! Although I knew I was going to be able to do this program with no issues 4 weeks ago, after the first workout, the thought of even running for 5 minutes straight kind of scared me a bit! Well, now that I am finished week 4, unlike many people on the C25K forums, I find myself excited for my 20 minute run next Wednesday!!! Last night during my last 5 minute run, I decided that I was feeling too good to stop at 5 min, so said to myself 'let's push for a 6 min run!'.. when I reached 6 min, I decided to push to 7! when I was almost at 7, I thought to myself 'well I *do* have an 8 min run coming up on monday, so why not give it a go no!'. So.. I ended up finishing last night's workout with an amazing 8 minute run AND I could have EASILY kept going!

I am absolutely in LOVE with this program and how amazing it's making me feel! I never bothered weighing myself before starting (I base my weight more on how I look and how my clothes fit).. and last night I was starting to notice a change in my body! My legs and butt are now rock hard! lol When I'm not flexing, you seriously can't even pinch an inch anymore!! hehe Oh C25K how I love thee! :)

Last night's stats:

Distance: 2.60 miles (4.18km)
Calories burned: 287
Time: 34.30

p.s. I used my own playlist again last night and decided that this is the way I'm going to do it from now on. I am running so much better with music that I love and can sing along to!! Last night's playlist consisted of:

Boy - 'Hollywood'

Raine Maida - 'Sex Love And Honey'

Our Lady Peace - 'Where Are You' ----the BEST song to get me pumped up running!

Phoenix - '1901'

Lily Allen - '22'

Sam Roberts - 'Up Sister'

Metric - 'Rock Me Now'

Broken Social Scene - 'Almost Crimes'

Metric - 'Gimme Sympathy'

Metric - 'Dead Disco'
