I just finished W2D3 of the second round of C25K.

It occurred to me just before I left that there's a Ben & Jerry's not too far from me, and I could make that the loose destination of my run if I wanted to. I decided to do that, but only on the condition that if I got ice cream I had to add an extra run to the end-- I had to try to run from Ben & Jerry's all the way home.

I got there only to find out that they close early on Sundays. Bastards! Since I was there I decided to try to run home anyway. I almost made it, but I gave up about a block and a half from home. Still, that was a five-minute nonstop run on top of the six 1.5-minute runs I did earlier.

Also, I used my phone to track the final run. I was trying to force myself to run slowly, but I was still about 1MPH faster than the last C25K that I did. I'm certain I was running faster earlier in the session. (I'm still sloooowwwwwww, though.)

Stuff I am learning about my body (may or may not generalize):

I run much faster outside than on a treadmill. On a treadmill I "pick a mileage number" outside I get sick of looking at a particular building.

I go a lot slower in the first 10-20 minutes than I do after I've warmed up. My certified-athletic-trainer friend who ran with me this weekend said, "Distance runners should expect the first mile to be slooooooooow as your body decides it wants to do this running crap.

I have to be in Oakland (near 11th and MLK Jr Blvd) at 7 on Thursday. I also have to run three miles that day. Could I talk you into going around the lake with me, maybe? :)

Sadly, I can't. Not only do I not get home from work that early, but there's no chance in hell that I could run a lap around the lake without dying and falling in, in whatever order.
