Hello, I am wondering how many have reached a point in this program and thought, " I can't do this, I should just give up?" Well if you are one who has felt that way in the past, you must have gotten over it if you are reading this, so good for you! However if you are one who is feeling that way right now, or is hesitating to start this program, I urge you not to give up! I just finished week 5 run 3 the one where you are running for 20 minutes. How crazy is that! Five weeks ago I had a hard time walking to get my mail.
The first week I thought I was going to die. Week two had me thinking I had signed up for some modern day torture program. By week three I was questioning my sanity. Then week four had me beginning to feel and see good results. Yesterday I finished week 5 run 3. As I was walking in the cool down something clicked in my head, a " light bulb" moment. I thought, " My body has always been physically capable of doing this. It's been my own mind that was holding me back".
Somewhere In the last 5 weeks I had made the decision to push the mute button on the recording of negativity and self doubt. Exactly when, I couldn't say. Maybe it was the welcome I received when I first posted being a newbie. Maybe it was when I read the posts of so many others who had felt the same way and then read the encouragement they received. It doesn't really matter WHEN it happened, it only matters that IT DID happen. It is amazing what the human body is capable of doing when the mind shuts up and stops sending negative message to the brain.
