I went a week without running, gasp! Life got in the way with travel plans and a little laziness thrown in early last week. However, I went out on Friday and completed Week 7 Run 1. I told myself if I couldn't do the entire run I could always do the last interval. In fact, I was so resigned to not being able to run for 25 minutes I didn't even bother using the app, just kept track of my time. I willed myself not to look at my running watch, but at one point when I felt I had been running for awhile I looked at it and it said 4 minutes! I said to myself "only 4 minutes, how will I ever keep going". But I did, next look it was 7 minutes, then 8 minutes, and by the 8 minutes I was still not sure I could keep going, but then it turned to 10 then 12 and by 12 I found my groove and while it wasn't easy, it was easier than I could have ever imagined. So, at 25 minutes I stopped, although I did feel I could have just maybe kept going. But, I didn't want to push it, especially after being off a week. I will do Week 7 Run 2 tonight, but it will have to be on the treadmill, because Colorado is expecting snow to start any moment now, and by the time I get home from work snow and dark doesn't seem like the best combo. I am grateful to have a treadmill, but I really really don't like the thing, and I don't anticipate being able to run the full 25 minutes, I just get sooooo bored. We shall see.....
