Sunday. . .Couch to 5k Week 6, Day 3. . .I ran for 22 minutes. I told myself I could do it and then I did it! The last three minutes were hard, but I kept going. I really was amazed since the 20 minute run only one week prior had felt so far beyond my reach and now I had accomplished 22 minutes instead. Next up was Week 7, Day 1. . .25 minutes.
Tuesday. . .I ran for those 25 minutes! I gave it my all. I turned the iPhone screen off so that I couldn't see how long I had left. Once I did start feeling like I was (hopefully) close to the end, I turned it on and found three minutes remaining. Those three minutes were again hard, but I did it!
Thursday. . .Couch to 5k Week 7, Day 2 was 25 minutes again and I nailed it. Once again I turned the screen off, but this time I didn't turn it on again. I was so satisfied with myself!
Friday. . .Lunchtime yoga. Oh, it was hard. I usually have a rest day before yoga day but since my run schedule is off track, there was no rest day. I'm not sure if I was just tired in general or if not having a rest day was the problem but I did feel super shaky. I really need to work on my upper body strength though because even on a good day, the upper body yoga exercises are difficult for me.
Today (Saturday). . .I am sore and stiff from yoga but I need to run today as I would like to get my run schedule back to the normal days (Monday, Wednesday, Saturday). I have run in this condition before so I am hopeful that I can do it. If I don't make it through at least I can say I tried!!! I am repeating myself but remember, even a bad run is better than no run at all!
