Not a good workout for me. Before I began, I kind of had a feeling it wasn't going to go well. I was tired. I didn't sleep well last night. I sat in a long, boring meeting all morning and no matter how much I stretched I felt tight. I debated on whether or not I should wait and do the workout tomorrow. I was afraid I was trying to talk myself out my goal. I didn't want to lose momentum. So, I headed to the gym, praying the entire time.
The 90-second runs were fine. I was not able to complete either 3-minute run. I lasted 1 minute the first time. I probably lasted 30 seconds on my next attempt. While I didn't reduce my speed, I held onto the treadmill and did my best to keep up.
I decided that instead of going back to Week Two I will continue working on Week Three until I can complete those 3-minute runs. Since I was able to complete one on Monday, I know I can do it.
I've read time and time again that I will have good days and "bad" days. The most important thing to me is staying focused on my goal.
So, between now and Saturday, I'm going to stretch and get plenty of rest. Tomorrow I'll probably do a quick 30-minutes of cycling and take a long walk on Friday.
