Tonight I did Week 2, Day 1, for the second time. And guess what?!? It was tons easier than the first time I did it, one week ago.
I have been procrastinating these workouts every night, waiting until about 6:15 to leave, knowing that it will be dusk when I get back at the house at 6:45. Since tonight ends Daylight Savings Time, it will be getting darker earlier and earlier and I am kind of dreading it. Even though I’ve been putting it off until the last minute – I am still doing it, and finishing it! Tonight I did all the segments of the workout without stopping during any of the jogging sections. I felt really proud of myself and I can tell it’s getting so much easier.
Another thing that I noticed differently about tonight’s run was that I finished in much better time. Usually when the 30-minute workout is complete, I still have several minutes to go before I get to the house. Tonight, I finished much closer to my house than normal, meaning I am getting faster!
I can also tell that my poor knees are feeling the effects of running. They were a bit sore today when I first started out. As were my ankles and calves. I have to remember one of my favorite quotes, though – Pain is weakness leaving the body.
That’s all for tonight. See you day after tomorrow for Week 2 Day 2 Round 2!
