My run yesterday wasn't quite as good as I was hoping for, but not as bad as last week either. I walked to and from the gym again (7 minutes each way). Then I hit the treadmill:
Ran at 5.5 speed for 10 minutes
Walked at 4.0 for 3 minutes
Ran at 5.5 again for 5 minutes
Walked 2 more minutes at 4.0.My goal was to run for 10 minutes 2 times with a 3-5 minute walk in between, but I just couldn't make it happen. It took a good 5 minutes to get into the groove, and then it wasn't too bad. But I took the walk break at 10 minutes so I could go for another 10 minutes...but I couldn't get going again. I still get so sore during my runs...and I don't have much mental strength to fight through it!
I have decided I really don't love running, and I'm thinking I will be changing my goals again shortly. I do want to be able to run & compete in a 5K race, but I don't think I'm into the 10K & 1/2 Marathon anymore. We'll see how I feel once I conquer the 5K, but as of now I'm thinking running is not so fun!
Today was my last day of eating so junky for a while, and I'm kind of glad. I have been bloated all week and feel like a lethargic cow! Tomorrow will be day one. Well, more like pre-day with our fit tests, pre photos & weigh in, and planning our diets. Here goes nothing!!!
