progress, not perfection
Sunday, July 15, 2012
I reached my goal for tomorrow (week 4 already?) this afternoon. I feel very proud but also kind of deflated. i ran for 14 minutes with walking intervals in between and it was really hard for me at the end. I don't feel like I'm getting any better at this. I know this would have killed me a month ago but the first two weeks I was seeing results almost DAILY. I couldn't run at all two days ago so I just power walked for 30 minutes. I'm not going to stop but I guess I didn't realize how much my improvement was carrying me, motivation-wise. I'm going to get to the store and find something healthy to cook now, and maybe take a little nap.
My goal update:
I want to be able to run the same tomorrow - 4 minute warm up, 2 minutes on two minutes off for 32 minutes
week 5's goal will be the same as week 3 that I failed. I want to run 4 minutes solid 3 times in 30 minutes by next monday. I feel like I should be able to do it 4 times in 30 by then but when I set my goals too high I feel even worse if I don't achieve them so baby steps.
do squats every day after running and stretching. get up to 20
