I've been fighting with myself for the past few weeks in order to stay on track and it was not going well. I fell into the trap that everyone does at some point where you start comparing results and dedication and made me feel like a failure. That was how I would start the day and led to another disaster of a day. So, I'm taking this weekend off and I'll start fresh on Monday. No tracking, no stress, no success/failure analyzing.
While I have been fighting myself I have still been working out. I actually met my goal of 4 times this week which was a miracle compared to earlier this month.
I have started to do Couch 2 5k again since I love it when a program tells me exactly what to do. Since it is still damn cold and snowy out I'm trying to do it on the treadmill. Now my treadmill is at least 15 years old (I remember playing on it when I was a kid) and does not have a digital adjustment for the speed it has a sliding bar. You also never know what speed you are going to get when you adjust it and it does vary throughout the run without moving the slider anymore. It is a bit of an adventure. I just can't justify speding $600 on a treadmill when I'm not even sure I really like it. I prefer running outside easily and plan to be out there except when it is too cold or too hot. Anybody in MI want to donate a treadmill to a needy lady?
