I ran 10 minutes straight!!

So...I was debating last week about whether I was ready to move up to week 5 of C25K. Well, clearly I am.

Today, I ran 10 minutes straight, without stopping, 10 minutes!!

I didn't write down what week 5 actually entailed, but I remembered being scared of an 8 minute run, so I thought I'd aim for that, and then once 8 minutes hit, I thought I could actually probably go a bit further. At 10 minutes, I still felt like I could probably keep going, but I don't want to overdo it. Especially as the longest I ran last week was 5 minutes straight, more than doubling it seemed like it might damage something.

But still....I am so proud of myself right now. I don't think I've ever ran 10 minutes straight without stopping in my entire life!

Plus, after my 10 minute run, then a 4 minute run, I ran another .4k and successfully calibrated my ipod nike+ thingy. It's only taken me a month and a half to do!

So, happy valentines day to everyone!
