and another little run...

Wil pushed me out the door when we got home and I went for another little run. Day 2 of week 2 of couch to 5K, so another set of 3-minute run, 3-minute walk, repeated four times. It was a bit warmer today, and I had felt tired all day, so it wasn't quite as sprightly as Tuesday's run.

Have decided to set myself a little project, with a great big reward at the end. If I stick to my schedule and run 10 times in 4 weeks, I will give myself this:


It's a little naughty -- I mean, it's made my Nike, for heaven's sake -- but we don't make watches. And this one is really fantastic. And I've wanted one since before they were available. So that will be my prize if I complete my challenge. 

It's not a super easy challenge, mind you. I haven't run ten times in any month since, oh, November? But I'm also giving myself a little benefit by starting the 4 weeks on Tuesday... so I've already got 2 of my 10 workouts done. And I'm giving myself the wiggle room to miss 2 workouts over the 4 weeks. But, still, if I get 8 more in by end of day on Monday, July 11, I'm getting myself a brand new running toy.
