SP 5k Your Way Week 6 Complete!

Monday, October 14, 2013

First: I really want to thank my fellow underdogs for all the support I've been given so early! This challenge is shaping up to be amazing, and this is my favorite SparkTeam yet. The comments on my blog and page have been so supportive and helpful! I never expected this level of support, and I am overwhelmed. I hope to be just as supportive as the weeks continue.

Moving on, this weekend was off for me. I ended up going out of town and had a lovely time, but went off the rails of my fitness plan. The upside was that Saturday was full of walking. The downside was tailgating led to overeating and drinking, and Sunday I just lazed around.

I felt so crummy today, but pulled myself together and got back on plan. I finished week 6's final workout on the 5K your way plan, and I feel okay about starting next week. It was a bit rough; I wasn't really feeling it and almost wuit early on, and (may be TMI) I couldn't find a sport's bra emoticon Suffice to say I very much regretted the lack of support.

I pushed myself almost too hard, and finished just a minute shy of the plan, but I made it 2.5 miles! I felt better after, and was so glad I didn't quit 15 minutes in like I wanted.

    Hey Teeammate, nice blog and good for you for jumping right back on track. You know I am never able to find a sports bra either emoticon

    Ok on a more serious note, If you don't mind I'd like to follow or at least hear more on your progress to a 5K beecause it is something I'm also considering. Your success will encourage me on my goal. I'm still well over 300 pounds and it will be a while because of my knees before my Doc gives the go ahead to start such a program, but I do have a goal of participating in a 6K in St Louis, perhaps this upcoming summer or the next. You making your 5K goal will help me make mine!

    I also loved Mavka's comment on how a power song can push us!!!

    emoticon I often need to talk myself through exercise. It's really easy to skip because I'm going to be late for work or I feel tired. But when I start and push myself through I feel much more energised and it's nice to feel the sense of accomplishment. Good music really helps, with running especially. Sometimes you feel absolutely worn out, then a power song plays and you run as hell to the finish for 5 more minutes.
