I feel like a dumbass. I got all excited about these C25K podcasts I found and downloaded last night. I couldn't wait to see how or if they effected my performance. I get out to the track today, turn on Carli's running into shape podcast annnnnnd dun dun dun I had downloaded week 3. Fail! But wait, there's more! I flipped to the Go Nicole Yourself podcast annnnnnnd dot dot dot also week 3. Bummer that means listening to the cue only podcast, how boring!
So I am doing my run and it's a high wind day and also seems to be a bad asthma day as well. I get done with my 2nd interval and think. .. I am only going to the halfway point today when dot dot dot halfway point interval! I think to myself ok I'll do this one and then the next one then that's it. I finish the 4th and say what the hell just do 5! As I am finishing up the 5th interval it dawns on me, there are only SIX intervals, bitch you are NOT quitting with only 1 interval left to jog, that's bullshit and I am not going to let you quit. I don't care if your jog is more like a hobble (it was) you are going to DO IT. And do it I did.
I can kind of see why they say to take a day of rest in between but look 1 day in between is fine, it's the damn weekends that kill me. Once I take those 2 days getting the motivation and energy to get up and go again on Monday is killer. Here in the very near future I am going to have to get motivated enough to run in the mornings as the weather should be warming up real soon. Which begs the two questions: can I use the school track before school and can i get myself up out of bed early enough to go up there and use it before school? It would mean getting there around 7:30-7:40 and then waiting a few extra minutes after before the supervisors arrived for the kids to go in to the building. Guess I'll be calling the school this week to find out.
