Disappointed is okay!! We all get there and we all climb out again!! Just keep telling yourself it's only 2 minutes of your many minutes you have to spend tomorrow.
Rootin for ya!!!

Be comforted in this fact:

8 minutes is a great start! I just finished the first week and found Day 1 absolutely horrible, but things had improved dramatically by the time I got to Day 3. Now I'm dreading my first two-minute jog tomorrow...

I understand, I tried week one and could only run 10 seconds before my knee started hurting. I walked 3 miles instead. Just keep at it.

Good for youon the 8 minutess - I know certain health issues can be hurdles to overcome (I am a type 1 diabetic and often have had to interrupt physical activities because of low blood sugars - very FRUSTRATING). I am sure you'll be "back up to speed" in no time! emoticon

Don't get discouraged, just keep going forward. You can do Day 1 for a couple weeks if need be.

I could only go for eight minutes and had to stop (I'm asthmatic and it kicked in WAY too soon). I'm in worse shape than I thought.

Tomorrow will be just taking a normal walk, then I'll make another attempt Wednesday. I'm going to have to build up to getting started. I'm discouraged but I'm not giving up. I used to be able to do 5K in 30 minutes and I AM going to get back there again.
