Finished Day 3. Week 6 is over and done. Day 3 wasn't due until tomorrow, but my schedule tomorrow is going to be full and I felt pretty good today. I felt a bit sluggish during the first 5 minutes of the 25 minute run, but after that it sort of... Read more

Week 6 Day 1 done, BUT, that was the hardest session I have had since day 1. The first 5 minute run was a little rough just to get started. I thought the second 8 minute run would never end. The sides of my lower leg were aching. Not shins o... Read more
Need More Consistency

A Great Mistake
Monday, May 17, 2010      9 comments

I made a mistake. A great mistake. I hopped on the treadmill and put the iPod ear plugs in and chose Robert Ullrey’s podcast. Everything was going okay and I made it through the first three minute run with no problem. I can do this. The nex... Read more
