C25K Week 2 Day 1

I worked the overnight shift Saturday and Sunday nights, and by the time I got home at 8 AM on Monday, I was ready for bed. My plan had been to get up around 1:30 and head to the gym, but when I woke up my left leg was really bothering me so I figured it wouldn't do me much good to stress it out. Today, though, I felt great and my run went very well.

I can tell a significant difference between my running shoes and my regular shoes, and it has me thinking that I might need to look at getting some different shoes for everyday use (my regular shoes feel incredibly hard to my feet). Unfortunately, money is a bit tight, so I'll have to wait a while before I make any more shoe purchases, especially since I'm not expecting a $20 pair to do the trick.

Anyway, on to my stats for today:

0.00-5.00 - 3.5
5.00-6.30 - 6.5
6.30-8.30 - 4.0
8.30-10.00 - 6.5
10.00-12.00 - 4.0
12.00-13.30 - 6.5
13.30-15.30 - 4.0
15.30-17.00 - 6.5
17.00-19.00 - 4.0
19.00-20.30 - 6.5
20.30-22.30 - 4.0
22.30-24.00 - 6.5
24.00-26.00 - 4.0
26.00-31.00 - 3.5

I hit a total distance of 2.35 miles today, which comes out to an average 13:11 mile. Those sub-12-minute miles are looking quite a ways off, but I'll get there.

I hope you've been able to get some exercise in, even when I haven't. Feel free to leave comments about the things you are doing!
