So I started the c25k program last week and have kept to my schedule of running dates...woo hoo. I really thought today's run would be "mission failed" because about 8 minutes into the program my treadmil lost power...not once, not twice, but three times...WTH!! Then on my shoulder apprears the emoticontelling me "Awh just get off the treadmill and MAYBE, just maybe you will try again later today".....My thoughts..."Yeah, right, if I step off now...I won't get back to it today and I've only had down time for about 30 seconds so I am stayin' ON" Knocked the emoticon off my shoulder and powered up the treadmill one more time...woo hoo!!! Then outta nowhere about 15 minutes into the program my chest was getting tight and I was coughing my head off....guess who apprears yet AGAIN?.....yep, the ole emoticon telling me "You are sweaty and hot. You are coughing your head off, Your chest is getting tight like you are getting sick, just get off the darn treadmill and maybe you will feel like doing this run tomorrow!"....We argued back and forth for what seemed like forever but needless to say....I knocked the emoticonoff one last time and finished the program!.... now I am proud and feel accomplished for the day! emoticon

    Ooooh you are my inspiration! Kick that devil to the curb, girl! I love it! A 25K... I wonder if I can do that! Actually it's more of a "when" thing, not an "if" thing, right? ;)

You kick serious butt!!!!

    Way to go! Good for you. My little Devil generally wins! ha ha
Now he has gotten into my knee to keep me from walking my 3 miles! GRRR I was working towards 8 miles but all has come to a screeching halt as of 2 weeks or so ago! Guess I'd better figure on Yoga for a while!
Happy Day After TG and keep up the positive thinking! emoticon emoticon

    Good for you and shoving that little guy off your shoulder, he jumped on mine while I was running yesterday too...told him where to go...and finished my run! Exercise is quite often about the mental will as well as the physical ability.

    It's amazing the tricks the mind comes up to keep us stuck in the old ruts. It's also amazing what we can accomplish once we free our minds and unlearn the old program and create a vision worth moving towards. Keep that devil at bay and keep up the great work!

    LOL - Great use of emoticons!! Although, I have to say, the devil ones look more like the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. Glad you got through the workout though. Guess I don't need to motivate you today :-) Great job.

Oh, and btw ... a woman who is "sweaty and hot" ... is a good thing emoticon

Muah!! --Alan
