W4D1 Complete!

Sunday, July 18, 2010

Holy crap! This was a hard one. I think the last time I ran for 5 minutes straight was in the last millennium. Seriously. We had to run for 12 minutes in high school and I'm pretty sure thats my most recent run (other than to the bus or train, that is). I went slow. VERY slow. Like...old ladies walking faster than me slow, haha. But I did it!!! I kept running for all 16 of those running minutes. My quads were killing me something fierce and by the end my feet were numb. But I did it!

I slept like crap last night so I was TIRED this morning. I'm hoping that on Monday night I will sleep much better so Tuesdays run won't be quite as tough. I'm really proud of myself though- I have strength and willpower I didn't even know I had!

P.S. Thanks for all your support, fellow Sparkers!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

    I just did W4D1 today too! I had to play mental games with myself to get through like counting backward from 1000 by 3's, challenging myself to make it to the next minute, end of the song, etc. I also had a magazine open on the treadmill so that I could read it while running. Anything to take my mind off of how long those 5 minutes seem. We did it though! Woo Hoo! Great job!

    So proud of you! W4 - W7 is where I had to hunker down and dig deep, it's the key building block weeks, I think. You will continue to find that with each session you complete, you will amaze yourself! emoticon
