I've kept to the Couch to 5K while on vacation. Last Sunday I started week 7 - that's all 25 minute runs, all the time. Today was the last day of week 7 and the humidity (according to was at 90%. So I was slow. It would have been the least mileage at that time, except I held on and ran a further 5 minutes after the 25 were over, for a grand total of 30 minutes! Which is where I'll be at the end of week 9. All through week 9, actually.

I find the running a lot easier when I'm not looking at the end point. All through the podcasts, I'm guessing how much time I have left, but when I'm doing some extra time, it's so much easier. Because I know I'm excelling above my goal? I don't know.

Here's what I do know: I should get through week 8 while still on vacation. And, even with the travel days in there, I should finish week 9 by no later than my birthday. Which will be freaking awesome. New goals to be set after that.

Also, the running is probably helping a lot with the Wisconsin eating. Oh my god. The cheese, the ice cream. It is so good and there is so much of it. I am pretty much failing at self control. But it's vacation, and I'm not trying too hard.

Vacation is good. We keep doing things! Thursday we spent at the Bay Beach Amusement park and the NEW Zoo in Green Bay. Today we bummed around Sheboygan some, and got ice cream at Culvers. And played badminton in the back yard. Actually, it's like half court badminton. And you know, it's really good. Not just the game, but the hanging out, the great summer weather. This is actually a really nice vacation. Since I was up at 5:45 this morning, I had a 9:30 nap, which was novel. And we have a whole 'nother week of it! It is good.

Need to say: I'm really impressed with how you're getting through couch to 5k. I've tried to do it more than once and I always peter out around week 4.

Thank you. Maybe it's because I've never really tried anything like this before, but I've been pretty thrilled with my newfound sticktoitiveness.
