The Shred & a 5k

I woke up early enough to complete the Shred this morning before heading out for the 5k. I'm glad I did because it would have been tough motivating to do it when I came home. The 5k went well, it was a little cooler than I thought and I had to run with my jacket on which I wasn't planning to do but I ran it in 23:37 or about 7:34 minutes/mile. I think. I can't remember exactly. I was pretty pleased with that although I felt like I was running fast the whole time and that? Isn't EXACTLY fast, but oh well.

There is something inherently different about running a 5k than simply setting out for a 3.2mile run. I hate being chased and feeling like there are people behind me. This does not bode well for races.

I was proud of myself because I ate a great breakfast before going which I don't usually do but then I ruined it at the end of the race by eating cookies, 1/2 bagel, grapes, and 2 muffins. Yea... god help me on weigh-in Tuesday. I have basically zero points and 100 calories left for the day. Go me.

I came home and pulled out my exercise mat to stretch. I don't stretch nearly enough and need to get back into it. I think I have some stretching dvds at my parent's house but they were really boring. Does anyone know of a good stretch workout? I don't want it to be super intense, I just want it to be relaxing and enjoyable. And work.

I don't have too much going on today I think I'm just going to relax for the afternoon (and try to stay away from food) then I'm babysitting at 5.

How much was the DVD? Did you end up getting it at Target?

I think it was around $11/13 dollars. I looked for it at Walmart, but they didn't have it. Ended up getting it at Target. I also picked up her book- - I forget the name. Something about the last 20lbs...
