Today I started week 3! Whoo hoo..go me right? Well, I am happy to report that I almost died..seriously..
Ok, well maybe not "seriously", but I sure felt like it! This week's new workout assignment is to complete 2 rotations of :
jog 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
walk 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
jog 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
walk 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
Now when I was reading this, I'm like ok no biggie..until I got to the JOG FOR 3 MINUTES part..I was not thrilled with that..and now I know why.
While I was running, did I not like it? Yes.
Did I think I was going to die? Yes.
Did I think my head was going to explode? Yes.
But did I finish the whole workout? YYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!
Even though I was pretty sure I was going to collapse at any moment and I have no idea how my legs actually kept moving, I liked running where I did today. Normally, I run on the sidewalk around my neighborhood; however, lately I haven't liked it as much because basically it's not long enough. I have to run back and forth it 2-3 times to get my workout completed. So today, I decided that I would go out and run on the actual road. It was long and wide enough where I could run on the shoulder and not in the grass. The other great thing about this, is that I got a definite ego boost today! I can't tell you the number of honks and waves I received from complete strangers on my run ;0) AND they weren't even all men (though most of them were ;0)
*Kyrbie, before you even say anything, don't worry. I don't plan on running on the road at night! ;0) Only in the day time!
I recorded my run today and I ran/walked 2.4 miles, I have lost 3 lbs since my weigh in at school last Friday, and I've lost half an inch from my waist!
Overall, today's run completely sucked. But I did it, and I'm so proud of myself!! ;0)
Tyly, honey...I'll pray for you! Get ready, you're going to die!! ;0)
