I found this week difficult too. I feel like I dragged myself on the last run. I forgot my music at home which didn't help. Felt good about myself for finishing after though. I was a bit sore after week one too. Need a trip to the Chiropractor and massage therapist I think!! Also some better shoes might help.

A friend once told me that the trick to running is to just walk until you feel like you actually *want* to run.

I keep this in mind on low days and just put on exercise clothes and go for a walk in my favorite part of town, no pressure, just walkin' while listening to my favorite workout/happy music. eventually it's true, my legs just WANT to move faster, and so maybe 30 minutes into my walk, I start running or follow the program.

W2 D2 was like this for me, bad bad day that ended with a great interval run after a whooole lot of walking before it.

I have those days too! This is the third time of started this plan since August. I'm on my week two and what I've found that helps is music. Instead of getting up and turning on the news I now get up and put on the head phones and I'm ready. I created a station on Pandora with a lot of dance music that I like and I listen via my cell phone. It helps to keep the treadmill from being such a bore!

I began running on the treadmill but once I took it outside, can't run on the TM anymore. I'd rather skip a day then get on the TM...LOL

Still trying to figure out if I am just burnt out or not feeling it, but I am in week 2 (supposed to be in week 3). I ran on a treadmill and I got the worst shin splints. I normally run on a trail so that could be why. I used to think running on a treadmill was easier but I was so winded last night! Hoping its all just the weather, I want to get back in the zone!
