I'm combining these posts. I'm thinking about just writing each week.
I am going to repeat Week 2 & 3. Basically, week 3 is just really hard. There's no way I can see myself being able to run 5 minutes on Sunday. I was not able to run the entire last 3 minutes today.
I hate not being able to do it. My knee is really killing me and I have horrible side stitches. Poor Hannah has had to stop at least once each day this week. I've stopped on day 1 and again today on day 3.
I think moving back is the best way. We're going to repeat week 2 and give our bodies time to get stronger before going back to week 3.
It's not exactly the post I was wanting to make, but I think it's a good update anyway. I need to get stronger before moving up. You gotta know when to walk away, and know when to run. I'm just walking back a bit to get a running start.

I really didn't feel like running today. Yesterday I wanted to. Today, not so much.
Come 5 PM it was 79°. We had bad storms last night. It was pretty nerve wracking. Today has been nice, but more storms are expected. I knew if I skipped today, I would have to run 2 days in a row. Not happening.
So, I got Hannah and out the door we went.
After my first run of 90 seconds, I was winded. After my 3 minute run, I was done. I kept going. Did my next 90 second run. At the lady 3 minute run, I thought I was going to throw up. I pushed myself. I kept going, even after Hannah stopped. I made it all the way to the last 5 seconds. Then I had to walk. I wish I would have kept going, but I was spent. I almost got sick.
We ran though. That was great. However, if I can't run day 3 without knowing I can go further, I'm repeating day 3. I will not go up a level if I can't finish the one I'm on.
