What a difference a month makes! At least when you're being consistent with something like c25k (even if not as much with other things).

I've finished 6 weeks of c25k and am now (well as of tomorrow) into the solid runs rather than intervals! Yesterday I managed almost all of my 25 minutes at 4.7mph. I had to drop down for a little while to get my breath/not puke because the poster child for why people shouldn't be allowed to use body spray BEFORE working out chose the treadmill right next to mine and I wasn't sure if I was on the verge of puking or an asthma attack. If something like that happens again, I'll say something to the gym staff - like suggest that if they feel they can't say "please refrain from using body spray before your workout" could there at least be "body spray free" locations in the gym. Nevertheless, with my 10 minutes warm-up and cool-down and the 25 minutes of running (maybe 5 at a fast fast walk or slow slow jog) I managed 2.5 miles! So woo!!

My plan today had been to either do No More Trouble Zones or Banish Fat Boost Metabolism (both Jillian's) today, but. We had a cookout at work, and I ate FAR too much lunch. So that meant PUNISHMENT! Which meant Bob's Cardio. Which I last (and first) did a month ago on July 10. And almost died doing it! So much modification. So much cursing at the computer (I use the dvd player on there because there's no room in my bedroom where the dvd player and tv are). Given how long it's been since I did it, I expected the worst.

But guess what? I did it! Very few modifications - and the ones I did do were more on the strength moves than on the cardio moves! I actually did it! By no means was it easy! I'm not crazy!! But it was significantly "easier" than the last time. I guess all the running really has increased my endurance!!
