Yeah, that's one of the good reasons not to rush into extra runs.
Hope it's still going well for you!!

I did my 3rd week 3 run this week, it felt pretty hard but managable. I'm going to try the week 4 run on Sunday to see if I'm ready for it, but if it's too hard I'm going to hang out at week 3 for another week. I'm glad I've been able to stick with it so well this week, so I'm hoping next week will be a good one too.

Be careful with the extra runs. While it's great that you did it, don't burn yourself out. One of the biggest reasons why people quit running.

It was a slow day at work today and I was full of energy today so I decided to do an extra run even though I had done one yesterday. It felt great! I was able to do all of the 2 minute running intervals without adding any extra walking time in between and I even added an extra interval at the end. I am planning on running on Friday, so hopefully it will be just as good as todays run was

Did my run today. It was pretty tough again, but I was glad I was able to do it. I will probably do my next run on friday and hopefully it will be a good one. I hope my work schedule will start to get back into a normal routine so I can start to have a more regular workout schedule.

Every little bit helps. If you don't feel like running, a walk will do nicely :)

Well it's a new week and I want to re-try and do the week three runs this week. I'm going back and forth on whether I should try and go today or not. I feel exhausted from the heavy workload I did this week (25 massages in 4 days!). I'm not sure if this is my body needing the rest or just lacking in motivation. I think I will go and just walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes and not press my luck with the running.

This week has not been going too well. I tried to run last night, but started feeling dizzy after my 2nd interval so I rested and then went back home. Have been feeling really tired because I have been doing a lot of massages at work this week. So I'm just going to try again next week when my scedule goes back to normal. I don't think it is a realistic goal for me to run on the same day I have work. I will be glad to get back to working three days a week next week.

I did my 1st run of week 3 this week. It was tough to get through because I was still pretty tired from giving 6 massages at work yesterday. I got through it but it wasn't pretty lol. This week is going to be pretty crazy at work and I will be out of town a couple of days for Christmas, so I'm not anticipating being able to get all of my runs in. I'm going to give myself some grace this week though and if I don't get all three runs in that's okay. I am anticipating having to do week three twice before I move on but that is okay with me. I am definitely not on a strict timeline with this :)
