Catch-Up Time

Hey.  I've been busy working on a new project, and in the process I've missed some sketch posts.  Here are the missing weeks 42, 43, and 44:



I've also missed some work-out updates. I started week four of the Couch to 5k plan, and it is brutal.I'm managing it, though, and that's good enough to me.  I can run for five minutes straight, without stopping or slowing, which feels great, and I can do it without my inhaler.  I think that's the thing that is surprising me the most about this working out thing - how much it has helped my crappy lungs.  Here are the stats from 10/17 -10/30:

Weight: 125.6
Waist: 27
Hips: 37.5
Thigh: 20.5
Calf: 12.5
Upper Arm: 10.25

 Total Miles: 7.3
Calories Burned: 480
Average Speed: 4.45
Average Heart Rate: 155 bpm

The numbers aren't changing all that much, but I have noticed some physical changes just from looking at myself.  My calves, though apparently not any larger, are definitely more defined.  And my thighs are less... lumpy?  Not the most delicate way of putting it, but it is true.  My goal at this point is to be able to run for 20-30 minutes at a time by the spring.  This way I can go jogging outside without looking like a lame-o.  I think this might actually be an achievable goal.
