I was so sure I was going to be miserable last night after the workout. I was going to hurt all over, I’d probably puke at some point, and I’d feel like this
I was certain that I was going to get back from the run and say “I knew it. I knew I should have repeated Week 4 instead of pushing myself to move on to week 5 because
But that didn’t happen. Throughout the workout, which consisted of 3 5-minute runs with 2 3-minute walks in between, I didn’t struggle at all. I kept a more or less consistent pace, and I didn’t even start gagging. Unlike Sunday, I didn’t feel sore (well, no more than I did before the workout) afterwards, and today I’m nowhere near as stiff as I was yesterday morning.
I am so glad I decided to venture out of my comfort zone.
My confidence in myself has been renewed and I feel ready to take on the 8 minute run intervals tomorrow, the 5k on Friday, and the 20 minute straight run on Sunday.
Ok, well, a little part of me still feels like this
But I’m trying to ignore that part.
