Gulp... 25 minutes of continuous running? Um... sure, I can do that. Let's see, anyway.
6th week of the couch to 5K.
Update: Crap. It's 7:30 already?
Update, part II:
Done! I couldn't face running around the house, so I braved the neighborhood. Crisp clear night: I could see an amazing amount of stars, surprising considering all the brightly decorated houses.
Slow pace, but I did it. It feels much better running at night. Even if the temperature is hovering around freezing, I feel better about running in the dark. I think maybe I've been reading too many of those vampire novels...
I'm interested in how much the mind plays a role in exercising. I've never tried to run for 25 minutes straight before; I wasn't sure I could do it. (I thought I could, but I wasn't sure.) Now I look at the rest of the schedule and don't feel a qualm. I might be slow, but I feel sure I can get there. That's a good feeling.
