The Daily Mile and Week 7 Day 2

As you can probably tell from my blog, I am diggin' !!  I'm feeling like a real runner when I log in my miles and my running.  I'm hoping I can get my sissy to join as I'm feeling a little like a running reject with no friends on there! 
Well, today was an EXCELLENT running day.  I ran for 25 minutes straight!  A few lessons learned though..well, actually just one.  I am going to have to start running on an empty stomach.  These last two runs I thought I had given enough time from the last time I ate until I worked out....apparently not!  I'm worried I'll turn into a Biggest Loser constestant and puke all over the treadmill!  Yuck! 
Back to that excellent run though, I've realized that not every run will be as enjoyable and some will down right suck...but today was what it was all about.  I felt really good, like I could keep going.  I even kicked it up a notch and ran really hard the last minute. 
And on top off this excitement, I've lost a total of 8.9#'s since 12/20/09.  I had started the Couch to 5K earlier in December but really committed to running on 12/31/09.  I started out with Week 3 Day 2 on that day.
Tomorrow is going to be a weights day with some eliptical thrown in for fun.  I don't know if I'll do kettlebells or not...hhmmmm
Good night!
