C25K W5D2 + Happy 4th of July!!

Hi all!!

Today it was extremely disgusting out. I stepped outside to do my run and the air is like SOUP. The temperature was only 71 degrees but my thermometer said it felt like 94 because of the oppressive humidity!! But I didn't let that stop me... and I didn't do that badly! The first leg I ran a WHOLE 0.54 MILES! HOLY CRAP! That's the furthest I've EVER run, MAYBE in my life! And on the second leg, I ran 0.51 miles (uphill 75% of the way too). WOW! I was so proud of myself!! It was damn hard though and I was exhausted by the time I slogged back to my house. I timed it oddly so I ended up having to walk another 1/4 of a mile back to my house after I was finished Oops! Oh well, it didn't kill me!

It felt good to take a nice shower and then I had a bagel thin with some whipped cream cheese and I made iced coffee at home (Mocha Coconut, YESS). Definitely feel a whole lot better now!

Happy I made it through my run alive!
I weighed in today at the lowest I've been in a while 263.4. I find that now that I'm running (And I've been eating EXCELLENTLY!!!!) my weight fluctuates a LOT. But I'm trucking away! And I feel like I'm back on track! I only mumbled a LITTLE bit when I had to get up and run today. And I pushed through all the big hills. I promise one of these days I'll take some pictures of my running spots but when I'm running...I really can only focus on that!

Also, today in the United States, it's Independence Day. The day that the US declared independence from Britian and became their own country! Today we celebrate our soldiers and the brave men and women who served this country! I'm celebrating today by relaxing! I don't really have any plans to go to BBQs or anything like that. It'll just be me hanging out here! DEFINITELY doing some laundry and most certainly cleaning.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday and a Happy 4th of July!
