C25K - Week 2 Day 2
It's been getting hot the last few days. Up in the 90's. I decided to run this morning. It ended up being later than I wanted since I had to nurse Joy before I left. That delayed me 30 minutes.
Anyway, I really pushed myself today. Yesterday a friend on Facebook shared a 50th Anniversary Doctor Who Run this fall. There's a 5K run and 1/2 Marathon Run. I know I will be able to do the 5K by then. I want to see how far I can push myself. It's a "virtual run", so it's by honor system. However, I'm only going to register for the one I can do. No cheating. I want the Doctor Who medal. LOL! That motivated me to jog faster today.
I did it! By the end, on my second to last run, I thought I was going to pass out and/or throw up. My skin was prickly feeling when I was walking. Kind of like a mixture of the feeling of limbs waking up after they fall asleep and a burn. I kept on going though.
I did lose Hannah at the half way mark, but only for the run. She caught up when I started walking. I told her it's good to push yourself. It's good to know how far you can go. However, walking is not a failure. You need to know when you shouldn't push any further.
One more day of week 2. I'm scared! Brent had me look at week 3 and week 4! I need to keep pushing myself on my running. Like I said. I'm scared. LOL
Here's today's picture. I'm making progress on my tummy!
