Running Progress

1 Sep

I’ve worked from home the past two days, which actually made me more tired than normal.  I suppose it has to do with sitting on the couch for 16 hours.  So, short post tonight!

I don’t think I’ve talked about it much yet, but I’m working through the Couch-to-5K program.  I just finished week 6 today, and I’m proud to say that I jogged for 25 minutes without stopping!  According to the GPS, I ran just over 2 miles.  I haven’t done that in five years, so I’m pretty psyched.

I go back and forth between calling what I do jogging or running.  I’ve been trying to refer to it as running more often because it sounds more badass, but I average around five miles an hour which isn’t exactly speedy.  Where’s the line between jogging and running?
