It is Virtual 5K Day at the Sisterhood.
I laced up my Asics, filled a water bottle and headed for the basement.
I would have liked to go outside, but it's really cold, snowing and icy here in northwest Indiana.
I turned on the tv and hopped on the treadmill.
I was determined to make this workout count.
If you read my post yesterday, I wasn't real happy looking back at my letter to myself from last January. I'm not that girl that I dreamed about last year. Not even close.
Bari left a comment on that post that really made me think while I was on the treadmill this morning. She said "2010 was still a success because you learned what didn't work for you. Now you have all of 2011 to make it work and I know you are going to be great!" You know what? She is totally right. I have a new start and a new attitude to go with it.
I know that I have said this before. We probably all have. But something about this time feels different. I didn't like the way I felt when I read last years letter. I don't want to feel that way again next year. You'll have to come back on Wednesday for my weigh in post to hear all the details of my plan. You'll want to see my weight loss too because I am expecting a good one.
On to the real reason for this post.
My virtual 5k results.
May we have a drumroll please..........
Check it out.
My only problem was that I didn't know exactly what the conversion of a 5k to miles was. I knew it was somewhere around three miles, so I stopped at a round calories burned number.
475 calories burned!
I never went below 2 or over 5 for my speed, but I'm proud of myself!
