Have you ever had one of those workouts where your mind is psyched to go but your body just doesn't want to cooperate? Well that was me on my run today.
I had actually been looking forward to my run all day (what??) and set out feeling positive and excited for my workout. Halfway through the first 3mins I started feeling pretty tired and my leg muscles were burning so I had to slow it down to a crawl but did manage to keep going. The first 5min run was definitely the most challenging interval I've done so far since I started C25K and I came the closest to stopping during the running.
I pushed through it hobbling along and then oddly enough, during the second 3mins I started getting into a rhythm and felt okay. The last 3 and 5min runs were way more doable than the first two and usually it's the other way around for me, the harder intervals tend to be at the end of the workout.
Overall, I'm happy that I rose to the challenge today even though it was much harder physically to complete for some reason.
