Glad you're enjoying the C25K, wild~hair. You'll find that pretty soon you'll be doing fewer walk breaks, so you won't need to pay attention to the time as much - in fact, I find it better if I don't check it too often. So, perhaps you can just use the podcast for a couple more weeks....

Today I'll start week 9! I'll be on the TM again. It took my knees until yesterday to recover from Monday's 30 minute run outdoors.... But I'll run while watching All My Children - my guilty-pleasure soap that I've watched off and on since the 80's...

I'll do a "brag" post once I'm done!

Nothing like doing a 5k that starts 1/2 miles up hill, 2 miles downhill and then the rest straight back up to where you started and not being mentally prepared for that.
Currently, using JC HCC, Too Shea, CK and CCSS, RR or LOOB or MOP-C.
CK is the one!!

as of 6/17/10 - I have to add Joico!

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and each is a different color. But they all have to learn how to live in the same box. ~Anonymous
