Workout 1 25 min run
I did it!! I ran all 25 minutes, no stopping!!!! I am super pumped about this run!! I’m starting to feel motivated and that a 5K will be easy. Total distance was 2.1 miles. 🙂
Workout 2 25 min run
I was in California for the week, traveling for work. I was in Huntington Beach on Wednesday evening and decided to run on the treadmill at the hotel. When I started my warmup, I realized there was a 5K track as a display option, so I chose it. I did a 5 min walk, then a 25 minute run. I began the run at 5.5mph and ended at 5.0mph, declining slowly throughout the run. Because I had chosen the 5K workout, I decided to walk the rest. I finished the 3.1 miles in exactly 39 minutes. I figured this would be a good baseline for me when I do the Rudolph Run in December.
Workout 3 25 min run
I returned home Friday around noon. As soon as I got home, I cleaned the house for a little while because my mom and grandmother were on their way to visit for the weekend. Once I got through sprucing things up, I did my final workout of the week. I decided to run on the treadmill, because they would be pulling up in the driveway at any moment, and I didn’t want them locked out of the house. Again, I started my run at 5.5mph and slowly dropped the pace to 5.0mph. I was hoping to run it a little faster, but I’m not complaining. Several weeks ago, I would have never dreamed of running 20+ minutes at a time, I was struggling to get through 90 second intervals.
