This has been a good week. There were a few less than stellar food choices the last couple days, but nothing extreme. I am still behind in my book. It's not hard to read, I just forget about it. I commented on a few of my fellow challengers blogs this week. I hope to get to a few more this week. A few of you are struggling, but for the most part we are doing great. Keep up the good work everyone. Keep your motivation in the forefront of your mind whenever you feel weak or off target.

The break though this week came in form of running. On Friday morning I did workout 13.3 of 5k in 100 Days and it involved (3) 11 minute intervals although I only did two of the intervals I still ran for 11 minutes at a time. I was really proud of myself for running for 11 minutes at a time. The workout today (14.1) I was to run for (3) 13 minute intervals, well I decided I was going to keep going until I reached a certain spot. It turns out I ran for almost 20 minutes straight. I rested for about 2 minutes and then I ran for another 19 minutes. The distance was about 2.6 miles. Towards the end I did feel like my legs were going to give up, but I just kept pushing on and telling myself I could do it. I could run the whole thing. AND I did. I can't believe I went from 11 minutes to 19 minutes. I basically just skipped the whole last week of the 5k in 100 days program. My next goal would be to run the whole thing without the break. I really didn't think I would be able to run that long. So yeah for me!!! I owe this to Brad Gansberg for this great learn to run program. If you are the least bit interested in learning to run, I highly recommend his program. The best part is it was totally free. If you are a beginner runner skip the whole C25K program because it's just to fast. I tried it so I should know.
Have a good week everyone.
