TaraP Posted May 20, 2015 Report Share Posted May 20, 2015 I have decided that I want to keep track of my progress and struggles. I am hoping it will encourage me to keep going, and will be a way for me to monitor my progress. I have enjoyed and been inspired by other people's logs. So perhaps I can motivate somebody else in the process, although I am not sure that I can be as witty as some other logs I have read! So, I started to use this app because I have been struggling to make consistent progress with my running. I have never actually followed a plan. So I thought that perhaps by doing so I might be able to reach the goals and feel less frustrated. I completed my first run on May 17th. I did not struggle with the running which I was pleased with. I continued to walk after I was done the program until I had exercised for a total of 45 minutes. I did 5.16 kms in those 45 minutes. It was hot and humid and I felt drenched but good. More importantly I was able to use this app, play my music, and use Map my Run, all at the same time, without feeling like I wanted to throw my phone away. A technological achievement for me!! On May 18 I planned on a rest day and just walking. I had to talk myself into going out because I had gone golfing in the morning and I was trying to convince myself that was "good enough". But, I talked myself in going out for a walk. I must have been feeling enthusiastic about using the app because I actually forgot it was a rest day, and I began using the program. I realized after a few jnervals but kept going. I completed 5.12 kms in 45 minutes, again walking after I finished the program. I was surprised I did not do a bit more as j ft I pushed myself a bit harder than the first time out. But I think I may have run a bit faster and it was harder to walk at a fast pace. Plus it was windy, and hot, and I had been very active since my last run. Today was a true rest day. No exercise. I am excited to use the program tomorrow.
