I DID IT!! I paused one time during the 2nd 4 min run because there was a giant hill so I walked up the hill and then continued running. When I first looked at the intervals, I thought it was run 4 min, walk, run 6 min then repeat but it was 4-6-4 for the runs so I started out this morning relieved that there wouldn't be a second 6 min run!
My success was overshadowed for a few minutes by the fact that I think I could have died of heatstroke during my walk to get back home after my run. I live in a mountain town so, no matter which direction I head, there are hills to contend with. It has been a stumbling block for me in the past but I am determined to just work with it. However, this morning, I wound up in the full sun going straight uphill after I finished my intervals and the sun just about did me in.
I am home now and melted a couple ice packs already! Time to shop online for "wicking" running gear so my cotton clothes won't super heat me anymore! Any favorite brands? I am in an 18 right now...
Thanks for all of the support yesterday--you guys are truly the reason I got up and got after it this morning!!!
