Got phone calls this morning from all 3 CO jobs that I interviewed with at the beginning of the month. And got turned down from all 3 jobs. And then proceeded to receive 3 more job rejections this morning.
BUT this post isn’t about the negative aspects of the day or this past weekend, but to look forward to the POSITIVE aspects.
I started C25K today. You might be doing a double take to read that considering I’ve run over 25 5Ks alone, and then tackle on 10Ks and half marathons. You’d think I would have completed C25K with all of those runs. But nope, I have only completed training programs for 10Ks and half marathons. But I’m determined to start and finish C25K this time around. Why? Because I go to the gym 5 days a week and am tired of doing the same old thing on the elliptical, treadmill, lift a few weights, row, and bike. So to challenge myself, 3 days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) I will be doing C25K runs on the treadmill and slower-paced biking 20 minutes afterwards; Tuesdays and Thursdays will be 30 minutes elliptical and 30 minutes fast-paced biking/rowing, weights, etc.
C25K Day 1 — 1.89 miles @ 30 minutes (slow and steady start as I haven’t run in almost 2 weeks)
Now off to go figure out what to eat in the next 3 hours to get to 1200 calories for the day and not go overboard on carbs (I have about 500 calories to play with and about 60 carbs left for under 150. Story of my life as I feel like I’m this way every evening with too many calories to play with to even make MINIMUM daily intake requirements.)
