I don't know about you, but I was moving rather slow this morning. As much as I enjoy the evening hours of daylight it brings, I have a hard time with it being dark when I get up. My body just doesn't want to get moving. This morning, as my alarm went off, I was rather confused. It was SO dark out, and the alarm sounds at 7am! Of course, the fact that it was rainy and cloudy didn't help, but it was hard to get out of the warm bed to get ready to go to the gym.
But off to the gym I went, to start Week 2 of my Couch to 5K program. When I looked at it last night, I didn't think it looked too bad. This week, it's a 5 minute warm up, followed by 20 minutes of running for 90 seconds and walking for 2 minutes, and completes with a 5 minute cool down. Silly me, but after how great I felt last week, adding another 30 seconds of running show be a breeze, right? Yeah, not so much. Two cycles in and I thought I was going to die! My heart rate was taking forever to come back down while walking, and those 2 minutes went quick. I wanted to quit at least 3 times during those 20 minutes.
Cussing to myself the whole time, I finished the 30 minutes. I refuse to give up. At least for this week ;) I will learn to love running...or die trying.
