maggiemae82 Posted January 15, 2015 Report Share Posted January 15, 2015 So I have just completed w1d1. When I say completed I don't mean that I actually ran the whole time I was meant to: but I did make it to the end of the cool down without keeling over so that's a win in my book! A bit of background, I'm a nearly 33yo Aussie whose previous exercise history is basically none existent. I'd go for a walk every now and then and feel good about myself for a bit until I would realise my clothes were getting a bit tight so I'd go walking... And then buy the next size up. All that is about to change. I am seriously committed this time, not because I want to lose weight or look good or anything like that. But just because I want to be able to run. As simple as that. So how did W1D1 go? Well like I said, I finished it so that's a plus. The first 60 seconds flew past, oh yeah I could do this all day. Then the next 60 seconds and I made to about 57 before I had to walk. After that it was pretty much all down hill (figuratively speaking) ranging between gasping for air, wanting to die and hoping like crazy that I wouldn't see anyone I knew! So yep there was a section that I completely skipped and just kept walking but that's ok because I managed to run a bit in the next one and I didn't give up. I even did a little jog after it was finished because I was still a little ways from home and I wanted to see how much I had left in the tank (not a lot but it's nice to know there was something). Anyway I can't wait until Saturday when I get to go again. I honestly never thought I'd say that but there you go. If anyone is still with me, I have a question - is it ok to go for light walk on rest days or is it best to totally rest? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
