This entire workout is done twice through. I did it while watching Hannibal (which is a fantastic show, BTW!) so it took about 50 minutes all the way through. I used 3lb dumbbells and an exercise ball to enhance the workout. I felt good, got a decent sweat, but am worried I'll be sore tomorrow to prep for my Week 5 Day 2 run! :)

Saturday -
Couch to 5k Week 5 Day 2
(31min, 2.5miles, Max HR 176, Avg HR 136, 154 Cal Burned, 7.4g Fat Burned)
Tonight, I must confess that I really half-assed this day. Or, maybe the treadmill needs to be re-calibrated. My FitBit Zip said I did 2.5miles, and the treadmill said I only did 1.75miles. I went with FitBit's number because I have measured its accuracy and it's spot on. However, it was raining so I did not do my run outdoors, as I'm trying to do [alternate outdoor and treadmill runs], I am sore from yesterday's Biggest Loser workout but I didn't want a little soreness to affect me. After all, the soreness is just my unused muscles waking up!

So, I went ahead with the day. Now, for the confession part..... I did have to slow down and walk for about thirty seconds... once during the first 8-minute run, and twice during the second 8-minute run. I feel disappointed I didn't push through, but it was due to knee pain which I always heed my body because of my knee issues. Day three is coming up and I'm supposed to run 2 whole miles [or 20min] without stopping..... which I don't think I can do. BUT- I'm going to try. I will try and do Day 3, and if I fail I will start Week 5 over again, until I can do it. :)

Weight Check-In (Sat AM):

A two-pound loss. I feel good about this, although I did have fast food [Chick-Fil-A] twice during this week. I am working on not going at all, but on my multiple days off now when I'm running errands on each day it's just the convenient thing to do. I'm thinking what I'll try to do is one of two things: 1) I'll try and run all of my errands in one day and early in the AM after breakfast.... or 2) If I end up out multiple days I will plan on bringing a lunch. Yup, packing a lunch to go grocery shopping! :-P

Fitness Plan for the Week:

Sunday - Zumba! Johnny's out but I'm excited for a new sub!

Monday - Couch to 5k Week 5 Day 3

Tuesday - Biggest Loser Intermediate #2

Wednesday - Rest. [I'm actually having some dental work done -nothing major- but I'm going to be on valium and will likely sleep the day away after I get home. If I'm feeling okay at night I may do some easy yoga.

Thursday - Couch to 5k Week [6 Day 1?]-OR-[5 Day 1?]

Friday - Happy Birthday Amy!!!!!!
Biggest Loser Intermediate #3

Saturday - Couch to 5k Week [6 Day 2?]-OR-[5 Day 2?]

This upcoming week is going to be nice. I have 3 days again, Sun, Mon, and Fri. I requested this weekend off because my BDay is next Tuesday (the 30th) and I plan to spend the weekend being awesome with friends :)
