I ran 30 mins at 11 mins & change. I think my body’s still a bit tired from last week. I felt like I had to push myself more than I should have for that pace. But if I consider the 5K as workout 9-2 this means I’m officially done with Couch to 5K! Woo!
What now? I originally planned on tackling Hal Higdon’s novice 10K program, but now I’m not so sure. I’m a little disappointed by my 5K time (though I shouldn’t be surprised – it’s comparable with my latest runs). Maybe I should focus on speed for a bit first?
Yoga was good last night. I can almost get my heels on the ground in downward dog, and I’m so close to coming down from plank completely controlled. That last inch is still keeping me back, but I think I may have done one successfully towards the end last night. I woke up with the wonderful feeling of being well stretched out.
I need to practice side planks and shoulder stands this week. My arms are so weak & short. I need stronger wrists and more shoulder/back flexibility to compensate.
