Yup, no matter how motivated or psyched you are in your head, you gotta listen to your body...it knows what's best! Today I did my first day of Week 2...didn't quite get thru all the intervals, (only ran 3 out of the 4 intervals) but overall I think I did better than I thought I would. It's really a big difference in endurance when you go from running 1 min & walking 4 min (times 3) to running 2 mins & walking 3 mins (times 4)!! My body could definitely tell the difference, and it did NOT like it! But, I did push myself as far as I could without physically hurting myself. So overall, I consider it a success.
Keep up the good work and don't feel bad if you have to dial it back a bit...you're still doing more to become a healthier person than if you were sitting on the couch (or the Lay-Z-Boy in my case)!
Don't expect a good day...make one!
