C25K Week 6 Day 3

I meant to get to the gym yesterday, but I was so exhausted that even though I went to bed around 1:30 AM (normal now that I'm on the evening shift and not getting home until about 12:30), I didn't stumble downstairs until about 12:45 PM. By the time I felt up to getting my workout in, it was time for Abi and me to go out for some things we had planned. I went today, though, and that's what's important.

After a good 8 hours of sleep last night, I got up at 9:30 and was on my way to the gym at 9:45. After the first couple minutes of actual running, I decided I needed to knock the speed down a bit or I wouldn't finish.

Breakdown for today:
0.00-5.00 - 3.6 mph
5.00-7.00 - 5.5 mph
7.00-23.00 - 5.0 mph
23.00-25.00 - 5.5 mph
25.00-27.00 - 6.0 mph
27.00-32.00 - 3.6 mph

Total distance, 2.49 miles, which is a 12:51 mile pace.

That concludes my 6th week of the C25K program. Next week I'm back to three identical sessions a week. The 7th week is 25-minute runs, the 8th week is 28-minute runs, and the 9th week is 30-minute runs. I'm expecting to finish the C25K program on July 13th. Then on July 16th I plan to start the 10-week Gateway to 8K program, and the 10-week Freeway to 10K program on September 24th. If I'm able to keep this schedule, I'll finish on November 30th. Seems like a long ways off, but it'll be here before we know it.

What are you doing this weekend to move?
