"You are Stronger than You Think"

Sunday, July 28, 2013

That's what my former-coach husband told me today. Wow!

We walked a mile. Then did Week 3, Day 1 of the 5K101 program. (jog 3 minutes, walk 2. Easy-peasy!)

Then we did intervals: two minutes of jogging, one minute of walking. We did this for the next 2.5 miles.

Then we walked a mile to cool down.

Total interval distance: FIVE MILES. Total distance: seven miles.

And I didn't whine. Or pout. Or give up or give in.

I think he could be right: I AM stronger than I think!

    Well done, Nanette! It's also nice to have a partner who can keep up (or keep a bit ahead!) and encourage you!

    Don't forget that it was your mind that told your body to get going emoticon So maybe you think better than you think you do. How's that for complicated on a Monday morning emoticon

    Yes you are: physically and mentally too. (I'm thinking maybe they're connected . . . )

    I think intervals help the miles melt away faster as does having a partner to do it with you. Good for you!
