Week 6, day 3...done! Today had me running for 22 minutes straight. I went a tad bit longer than that though. Last Sunday I ran a whole mile and then some. *does the butterfly through this blog post* It's kind of a big deal. According to Nike+ I run a mile in about 17 minutes. This needs improvement. Slowly but surely.
Since the days have started getting shorter it's still dark when I head out to run. On my days off I try to push getting up an extra 10 to 15 minutes. I don't like it too dark when I head out even though I know it's gonna get light out. I think it's because I feel like bad things could be lurking.
Weighed in this morning and still no change. I'm a tad bit frustrated. I thought I'd see some change by now since I'm already 6 weeks in. I know muscle weighs more than fat, but I haven't even noticed a change in the way my clothes fit. What's going on?
I've been eating vegetarian (one of my August goals) since Monday/Tuesday. Lots of fruit juice/smoothies. I enjoyed some fake chicken too. I think I could go vegetarian for the most part as long as I had fake chicken. There are just some things that are hard to give up. Like I really want to make some chicken wings and pot roast. Ha! I think I still need to reevaluate what I've been eating to see why there hasn't been any change.
Maybe this week I'll try to add weights or something when I work out or even add and extra day of running and see if that produces any change. *throws hands up* Ugh, I don't know. I don't want to have a bad attitude about this so I'm going to focus on the fact that I can now run a mile and I can run for 22+ minutes straight, something I couldn't do before this. And how amazing I feel when I'm done running, like I can conquer the world.
