Accidental NSV!!

I went for my run tonight. I am on day 2 week 5. Day 1 of week 5 was 3 sets of jogging for 5 minutes, walk for 3 minutes. So when I got to today's run I figured it was the same. I mean so far each week I have done the same thing for 3 days each week.

So I was listening to my ipod and I wasn't really paying attention to the countdown on my phone. I was jogging along wondering when the 5 minutes was going to be up. It seemed like the longest 5 minutes ever! But I kept going. I got to my second set of 5 minutes and when that was over  it said "workout complete!" What?!?!? I thought maybe I had ran for 5 minutes 3 times and not counted correctly. So during the cool down walk I pulled my phone out and looked at it.

I was floored by what I saw! I actually jogged 2 sets of 8 minutes! 8 minutes!! I couldn't believe. I thought the program messed up so what I restarted it. I ran the first set of 8 minutes. So I completed 1 1/2 of todays routine. I could not believe that I ran for 8 minutes! Wholly Cow!!! So excited! 8 minutes! 3 times! 3.28 miles! average time per mile was 16.12 minutes! That's 30 seconds better than last week! I consider this my accidental NSV for today!

So overall, today's workout was swimming for 30 minutes and the C25K for 53.05 minutes. For a total of  579 calories today!

OK Off to bed for me. Surgery bright and early in the morning. I have to be to the hospital by 6 for 8 AM surgery.

I hope everyone has a great Friday. I will try to update tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
