Due to unavoidable circumstances I was unable to start the fitness challenge yesterday. So I used that as my rest day. I did get up this morning and let me tell you, I thought I was going to DIE!
I started pretty good. I felt great. The weather was perfect. I was proud of myself for getting out of bed and getting my shoes on. I was feeling awesome in my new tank top (hot pink!). I was on top of the world! I walked for 4 minutes and then started jogging. It wasn't too bad! And I found a new reason to love my new top! I could jog easier because it held everything in place! So I was psyched about that! I felt like I could jog longer than that first minute, but I paced myself. Started walking again. Second jogging session I was a little winded. By my fourth minute-long jog I was hurting! My side was aching and I just wanted to quit! I kept thinking 'I can't do this! What was I thinking?' Then I remembered that if you think you can't then you won't. So I started cheering myself on. When the next jog came I told myself 'Come on! It's only a minute!' And I pushed through that minute! I really had to talk myself through the last minute! But I timed it just right that I ended up right where I wanted for my cool down walk. I told myself 'just make it to the grass, that's all you have to do!'
And I did it!
I felt amazing! And I couldn't stop thinking about how great my top was! All the other times I tried jogging my ladies were everywhere! This new top is snug but looks really good! I think I might enjoy jogging!
