Say it, do it...hopefully

Arggh had a bit of trouble with my ap! Actually I blame the bright sunlight on my screen. Completed W4D1 a few days ago and feeling good. Then W4D2 done but tough. Had a couple of days off for recovery and did W4D3. Was really struggling and getting quite angry with the lovely lady on the ap cos the minutes just weren't passing fast enough. And I know Azatol had said don't look at the screen but I just had to cos I was dying!! Turns out I was somehow on W5D1!!! Anyway I just can't let the lovely lady win so I did it. But I am going to complete W4 this weekend just to mark my progress on the track. But loving that I'm not too scared of what next week will bring.

So finished off W4 today. I have a 5k track that I do my work out on and usually walk or run/walk the last bit cos I can't do the whole thing in the 30mins yet. Today I smashed 3 minutes off my best time. Possibly because I have a new running partner once a week. She is much fitter than me and could probably run the whole thing but she is coming back from injuries and was looking for some regular training. She certainly pushed me to go a bit faster. Bring on W5! Feeling great!

So today was W5D3. No way 20mins?? I can barely do 8!! Or so I thought. Still can't believe I just ran for 20mins!! The last couple of minutes could probably be described as wobbly bouncing rather than running! And as I was gasping I didn't really appreciate the half way announcement. I was actually thinking oh crap I thought that was about 15 mins. But boy did I enjoy the one minute warning! Almost felt like a real runner, having no walk spells. Wouldn't say I enjoyed it at the time but feel awesome now!!

W6d1 today. Yay getting faster. Loved that having done 20mins last week this one seemed a breeze, in my mind anyway. Legs still felt a bit heavy on the last 5 mins, and I have to keep telling myself to straighten up when I'm getting tired. I am actually looking forward to week 7. Yes I've gone mad!!! I am a (poorly postured and very slow) RUNNER!!

Ugggh W7D1 25mins was terrible today! Got to what must have been 12 minutes and was going to give up because it felt soooo bad! Good thing the lady piped up and said "you're halfway" and I decided, stuff it I'm halfway I may as well finish now. It was really slow and almost just bouncing on the spot!! Don't know why I felt so bad. Breathing was fine and felt I could have run faster but just couldn't lift my legs. Had to keep telling myself to lift my feet! Dreading my next one now!

Agent P, I just joined the forum, and was captivated by your log. For someone just getting started, your posts are an amazing motivational tool. As I was reading each of your updates I felt like I was watching an awesome 80'-movie montage where the protagonist starts out unsure and hopeless, but becomes a super hero right before my very eyes!!

 

Keep up the great work, and thanks for the motivation!
