today was good. tomorrow is the big day of 21 min. if you told me two weeks ago that i'd be running for 21 whole minutes i wouldn't believe you. week one day one was very difficult. i think the runs will always be difficult. oh well.

awesome mctool! is cool to hear about stuff you're doing, yoga is weiiiird to me lol. make some gym time though!

good luck with sleep kiwi. i know it sucks once it's completely out of whack. :S.

itt we are all ashamed that hexagon is stronger than us.

ran 21 min at 7min/km pace or 11.5 min/mile for you philistines.

okay i guess. i'm a bit weirded out that i felt i could run longer + at a faster pace, but i guess that's a good thing. i think the plan wants me to end at 6min/km pace for 30 min. feels doable i guess? dunno, i'll keep following plan and upping distance on my route i guess.

up to you mctool. lettin' you know you've been a huge inspiration to me in this topic. don't let yourself down regardless of how the $$$ works out.

today was a bad run. woke up late & needed to go to the bank and decided to get both done in one go.

pacing was crumpets, warmer than i'm used to, spent the whole run trying to dodge little old ladies with huge dogs they could barely control. today was the last day with a break in the couch to 5k plan. i've got the 5k route mapped out, gonna keep running along it and see how far i go in the time it tells me to run.

on the cool side that trip to the bank took 2/3 the time it normally does + i had to intentionally add distance to make sure i ran for enough time. guess the bank is closer than i thought.

i think i want to start starting strength. idk, ima think about it.

Waterpolo season starts next week and the pressures unbelievable. We've been selected and are expected to become the "next generation" of waterpolo proffesionals. Our coach is drilling us like mad (4.7Km in 1 hour is not fun) but I feel myself becoming stronger. It's mad to think 2 years ago I struggled to swim 200m yet alone sprint 800!
I have high hopes and will probaly post more on results here.

ran faster but shorter, i ran my old route but i didn't realize how short it was. don't think i'll do runs like it again, i'd rather stay out 30+ min than do only low 20s at a higher speed.

we are approaching 6 min kms/10 minute miles awww yee.

helped sister start her run today. then ended up running a little bit longer. i'm cool with giving up the long run if it means she gets a habit started.

one of my calves is really starting to irritate me if i go at a slow pace. can't wait for new shoes.

Woop, 12-9 win in waterpolo.
Beats losing 21-1, though I wasn't there and half the team has injuries/sickness.

bought running shoes & ran 5k that i timed yay.

32:20. not considering myself "done" c25k until that route is under 30:00.

also it fixed the shin pain immediately, there was a huge difference.

looks like i'm just a dumbass who should have bought shoes right away. good to know.
