I am kicking ass and taking names! I'm having fun, and getting my breath back and doing oh so well!
Last post I didn't have time to tell you that instead of switching to walking on my last interval, I challenged myself to run the rest of the way home. Whoop whoop I did it! The longest I have run non-stop since gym class, about 4 minutes!
The trick, I've realized, is to keep it slow. Originally I was sprinting, thinking I had to be "running" at almost full force. Not so good for endurance... But I have been consistent with my pace and have noticed I too am springy and graceful! I am not out of breath and fatigued, and my body feels wonderful!
The minor aches and pains are totally manageable. I just focus on my breath and music and push through with a smile.
So I have successfully completed two weeks of the program and am excited to start week three tomorrow! The intervals are getting more intricate - jog 90 seconds, walk 90 seconds, jog 3 minutes, walk 3 minutes, repeat. Can't wait!!
