Recap: Week 9

Things are continuing to move along nicely. This week, I ran for 25 minutes and walked for 5 minutes. I've also noticed that my speed is starting to improve, and my runs are starting to head into the low 10 min/mile pace...I'm not really doing any speedwork, but I think that my pace will continue to improve as I keep running.

I've really been taking my own advice on staying hydrated, which seems to make all of the difference. I ran on Sunday - I happened to be mildly hung over from the night before, and the gym was about 15 degrees hotter than normal. I was barely able to make it through my run...but the other three runs of the week were pretty effortless.

This week will be my first week of 30 minute runs, 4 times per week. I can't believe that I'm actually wrapping up this phase. People are actually starting to notice that I'm losing weight, and my pants are fitting me better - which is also keeping me pretty motivated. Let's see how this week goes!
