So…the Shred challenge is not going as well as I had hoped. Jillian kicks my ass. I’m terrified of her.
Now, for the story that relates to the title of this post. For some reason, I started having the urge to try running again. As I mentioned here, I’ve had this urge before…and it didn’t work out so well the first time.
I’m still going to do the Couch to 5K program, but I’m hoping this time will be different. I’ve decided to stop by a park to run on my way home from work in the evenings. Last night was my first time doing this, and I was really excited about it! Me, excited about running? Something is definitely off.
Anyway, I start the C25K app on my phone, and everything seems to be going fine. The time seems to be passing slowly, but I didn’t think anything of it. I just kept listening to my Macklemore and Kanye and continued on my slow, but merry, way.
About halfway through the workout, I took a closer look at my phone. Instead of starting the program over, I just pressed play and started running.
STUPID, STUPID, STUPID.
I was running the program for Week 2 Day 3, which is almost into Week 3! The crazy thing is, I kept going. I finished that entire workout.
No one can understand how much of a breakthrough that is for me. The mental aspect of weight loss has always been my biggest struggle, and I actually pushed through when my legs were screaming at me to take a break. Maybe I’ll actually be able to do this.
Can you tell how happy I am to be done?
