...was SO hard yesterday! Oh boy, those 8 minute runs are rough! I managed to run straight thru the first 8 minute run but the second one was not as easy. I had to stop twice to stretch out my legs. My shins get stiff very easily so they need a little coaxing to get thru. I think before I move to D3 (20 min run yikes) I'll redo D2 at least once. After completing C25K I stayed on the treadmill for another 25 min. My gym is awesome, there's a bunch of TV's lined up and you can plug your headphones in and listen. I like to watch the top 5pm news stories but I dialed in a little earlier yesterday because Oprah was talking about animal shelters. I was definitely getting emotional over some of the animals, then they had to play a clip of Faith, the dog that only has 2 back legs. Ah, I love her!
Between the gym and the ARL I definitely over did it yesterday. I had a bad migraine when I got home last night. I showered, took medicine and was in bed by 9. I'm still feeling some effects from it all today. Migraine or no migraine it was all worth it when I stepped on the scale this morning! 147.6! I've been hovering around 149 for the longest time so I was very happy.
Gym clothes for today are packed and sitting next to me here at work. I'm planning on some quick cardio then hitting the leg, arm and ab machines for an hour or so.
