So sorry to have been so absent - lots going on at the minute.
But I thought of you all this morning, and feel like I'd like to share a short story.
So I completed the program (see "graduate" badge) at the beginning of December. Then a series of injuries kept me on the couch for a month. So I've tried easing myself back into it - tried W5, and that went well, so only did it twice... same for W6, W7, &c. So this morning, I'm determined that I don't care about speed, that I wanted to complete 5km. The treadmill only reads in miles, so beforehand, I Google "5km in miles" and find that I need to cover 3.1miles. Easy peasy. So I start out, note that my warm up walk equals 0.3 miles, so my finish "line" will be 3.4 miles - right? Only something happens - I accidently pull the emergency cord on the treadmill, the belt stops, the screen resets.... now where was I? I remembered! Great! So I then ran for another 20 (yep) minutes to reach what I thought was my goal, only to realize that although I did great remember where I was, it got muddled in my brain, and I thought that number was my target. What does this mean? I did 5.04 miles. 5.04 miles. Plus a warm down walk of another 0.3... which means I did... 8.5 km. 8.5. Kilometres. My work colleague said "well at least you weren't - like - dying." She's wrong. I was. Dying.
On the brighter side, I did more than 8 km in a single run!!! PB!!
When has maths let you down? lol
