So yeah, I did it! I said I’d bump it up to 6k, and I did, I know 6k is probably a warm up for some, but to me it is like a BIG thing! From someone who has really never run since school cross country, for someone who has spent time on treadmills at a max of 15mins at a time and never on actual pavement or track, for someone who is overweight and always found something better to do, 6k is a big deal! And I am glad to say that I did it without too much extra time either! I think we are ready for 6.5, I just have to find 6.5 on my route! See how that goes, and train on that for a few more weeks before I want to start getting overly ambitious again.

Like I have said before, If you don’t feel like going for a run, go for it anyway and then see if you felt like it or not afterwards! lol Same exact principle for building on your runs – increase another 0.5k, don’t know if you can do it? Do it anyway, then see if you can do it or not lol
Pretty much what Nike says, Simple as Pie…. Just Do It!
Outlook for tomorrow:
I have planned where to extend my run, I don’t think its quite 0.5k extra than the usual, but we will see, I was a sweaty mess this morning, its going to be double time tomorrow…Can’t wait!! See you later FATTYNESS!!! YEOW!!!
