Signed in today and noticed my lovely green "graduate" badge, yay! Don't know why it makes me so happy but it does.
Last night I did my first post graduation run and it was not good. I had been busy camping on the weekend and it apparently had taken a lot out of me because when I attempted my usual 30 min run, it was awful. I had a hard time regulating my breathing and my legs felt like lead. Decided I just couldn't go anymore at 25 minutes so I headed home five minutes early.
Even though 25 minutes is a decent run and I only skipped five minutes, I wish I would have pushed through five measly more minutes and completed the run. If I was still doing the program, I know for sure that I would have pushed through it to complete the run and I worry about keeping my running up without C25K. I find just running can get kind of boring and not nearly as much fun or as enjoyable as working through the program.
I guess I'll just chalk that one up to a bad run and head out again tomorrow. I know it would be such a waste to let all my progress slip so I'll keep plodding along.
