I was not looking forward to todays session as on Sunday I only managed about 1 minute of the 2nd 5min jog (plod) before stopping completely ~ I had no more to give.... not even a walk (although an hour later I was doing a charity zumba session... go figure...) And I had been thinking of reasons since Sunday why I shouldn't carry on with C25K.
Anyway, this morning while walking the dogs I gave myself a bit of a talking too came home and got changed and headed out to the garage to the treadmill. My 1st lot of recovery times seemed a little bit better so on I plodded until the dreaded last 5 min session, but I dug deep and passed the barrier where I stopped before, gave myself a gasping whoop and plodded on. Before I knew it there was only a minute to go so I gritted my teeth and kept telling myself 'its only a minute, you can do a minute'.
I was so pleased when Laura said I could slow down, but the buzz from managing it is AMAZING!
