Today was hard. I’m not going to sugar coat it. I didn’t want to workout today. I don’t know if it’s the time change or what, but I’m tired and sluggish today. Even doing things I normally love has been a chore. I feel confident I would have skipped the workout if I wasn’t posting my progress on the blog, so thanks for reading and keeping me accountable!

C25K W2D2

  • Couch to 5K Week 2 Day 3
  • Walk 5 minutes to warm up
  • Run 90 seconds
  • Walk 2 minutes
  • Repeat the run and walk intervals for a total of 20 minutes
  • Walk 5 minutes to cool down

I was able to maintain the same pace of jogging at a speed of 6.0 and walking at a speed of 3.0 on the treadmill. It was more of a mental struggle than a physical one. My body was able to do it. My mind wasn’t so sure today. I just wasn’t in mood to read, so I watched an episode of Downsize Me. Watching a show about weight loss and healthy habits helps remind me why I’m working out. It also helps to think “If they can do it, so can I!” Tomorrow starts week 3 and my intervals will get longer.  I sure hope I am feeling better!

The takeaway is this: we need to get out of our own way. Don’t ask yourself if you FEEL like it. Just do it. Your body can handle it. You are awesome. You just need to believe it!

  1. I hope you can get some extra rest this evening! I am amazed at your perseverance, I need to push more. If I went by “feelings” I wouldn’t do anything….which is what has been happening lately. We must “keep on keeping on”! Hugs for your day! 🙂

      Thanks Aunt Peggy. I did get to bed at a decent time, and I seem to be feeling a little better today (Tuesday). 🙂 I hope you get to feeling better soon too!

      Thanks Michelle! You are so right about the mental game. I have to tell my thoughts to shut up sometimes!!
