Searching for that inner cheerleader tonight and found her. Thank God! I began my first day of week three tonight on the treadmill. I will NOT call it a failure, but a learning opportunity! Even if I am mad. LOL I Got into the third interval after only being able to do 1.5 of the run on the last interval. My feet ad calves were horribly cramping tonight. I am in a four hour sleep deficit from the last two days only getting 6 hrs sleep and maybe I didn't get enough water in today even though I drank my usual 2 litres before evening. Perhaps I did too much strength training yesterday? I only did the wii fit routine of yoga strength and did not do all of the exercises. Still. I tracked a lot of calorie burn yesterday. Hmmmm. Not sure. But the next two days I am not scheduled to run and will take it easier. I am not about to give up yet and will try to push through week 3.

There is a nagging voice in the back of my head reminding me that my doctor gave me my thyroid dose when I was 42 pounds lighter back in March. Perhaps I have topped out at my level for my metabolism at this point. (my thyroid was removed because of stage 2 cancer) I am not supposed to see him until March but may call the nurse just to see if that may be the problem. Until I try the intervals for W3D2, I am not going to overanalyze it and just try to be kind to myself.

I just came back from the run. I honestly was anticipating it to be the hardest run yet but it was in fact quite the opposite. I didn't overdo it on the speed and focused more on keeping the pace. The first four intervals passed pretty nicely, but by the fifth and definitely the sixth I felt more like I was trying to run but was at the pace of a walk and watching the clock to see how much time I have left

I was going to repeat week 2 for a third time but I felt pretty good so I went for week 3 day 1 and I was able to complete it. But I have this feeling that I will be repeating week 3 next week. Thats okay, I fully expect that this 5 week program will take me 10 weeks to finish.

I did my run today too.
60 min of nordic track, then I did my run, 2 miles in 23 min and the 3rd mile was 36 min. I really ran walked. I did the first 2 more run/walk, but did a quicker running, the last one I walked the first lap and then did a comfortable jog. It did feel good. a bit of rain on me. and then I stretched out before driving home. NOW that is the crazy part, I live close enough to walk but I'm afraid of dying out there running and not being able to make it home, so I drive the half a mile or so. Maybe I'll be brave enough soon.

Since I've been exercising I don't quite fit in to the schedule of the run. So I did a little bit more running today with less walking inbetween.

I finished day 1 of week three this morning. The beginning 3 intervals felt easier than I expected and then I lost it. I didn't jog the final interval but just walked. Like others, I'm expecting better by Wednesday.

Good for you to get out there - sorry that power is still out!
I just did my walk/run. I'm trying to change my attitude and "like" to sweat :) Went out in the coolest part of the day, because I don't handle heat well.

I did my W3 D1 this morning and I'm so glad I did. It was hard (but not as hard as I thought it would be) and I did it! This gave me a feeling of control which I needed - it has been out of control the past couple of days with the crazy storm in DC, my power is still out and the heat is crazy.

So rather than be a victim and have things happen to me, I decided to make things happen - so I did my walk/jog.

And now I feel more empowered!

I did my W3/D1 yesterday and I felt really tired too. It wasn't just the running... I had exercised a lot last week and I think I just need a rest day.

I finished my W3/D1 this morning and I have to say it was difficult for me. The running wasn't so much the difficult part, simply that I felt like I had no energy and I didn't sleep well at all last night. I got through it, though I will admit I skipped out on the last interval because I felt so weak. I will continue to push through this week though. Hopefully Wednesday will go a lot better than today. :)
