Jogging, Walking, Strength Training, Working Out
Tuesday, September 27, 2011
Today I was scheduled to do my day 2 week 6 of C25K training. My usual place that I run was being used for football turnout, so I decided to try running on the track. I had walked 15 minutes of warm up and was all ready to go. But after just 1 minute of jogging I felt like I was not going to be able to continue. So I walked for 2 minute and ran for 1 minute and then slowly I just kept pushing myself to run a bit longer and walk to get my breathing back. How was it possible that I had gone so far backwards? This is what I was thinking.
Of course, when I thought about it, I realized I had been up since 4am this morning, worked a full day of work without any breaks, came home, gobbled a piece of cheese and 2 rye crisps, just so I could get going to do my workout. I didn't think about the fact that I hadn't had enough water to drink during the day. I didn't think about all the strength training workouts I have done everyday for the past 2 weeks, with just Sunday as a day of rest. It is no wonder that I could not finish the planned training.
So program rewind. I will rest tonight, and tomorrow and on Thursday I will try to finish my day 2 week 6 training. And if I still need more time, I still will take more time. I am not in a race with anybody but myself.
