I took about a week-long break from my C25K program, but as of last Friday (the 10th) I have been back at it.
I had done all three days in Week 4, but I had still not been able to complete all of the running segments; I could not finish the second 3-minute or 5-minute run.
Friday (W4D4) afternoon I set out to run, and again, I was not able to finish the second half of the workout. I came home feeling defeated, but my sweet hubby, who believes in me far more than I do, gave me a great pep talk.
So on Sunday, I set out again (W4D5) to try to at least do the full 3-minute/5-minute/3-minute running sections. And I did it! THEN… something amazing happened. I did the second 5-minute segment, as well. So, I ran the WHOLE Week 4 workout, exactly the way I was supposed to.
I came home exhausted and crying. Happy tears this time, though. Happy tears. :) Stephen was SO proud of me and I was so proud of myself! It took me FIVE days to be able to complete the entire Week 4 program, but I DID it and I’m so excited about moving on to Week 5 tonight!
