So.. I have no problems anymore really with running 10 minutes, walking 3, then running another 10. That's easily done anymore. Why? Because I've done that same run about 4 times now with a few attempts at day 3 and failing. Day 3 is running 25 minutes straight. I blame it mostly on boredom at the treadmill. I run and run, feeling good, and a boring lame song comes on on my Pandora app. So I lose the 'grove' I'm in, having to keep running but pressing buttons on my screen to change the music. And then I get bored. Wanting this run to just end so I can lift weights or do something else. And then I get way exhausted and tired and just wanting to stop. Why is that???
I wouldn't mind running outside, I'm sure that'll solve my boredom problem but its so much harder running outside than on the treadmill. I started the c25k program on the treadmill, I'd like to finish on the treadmill and then possibly start running outside when spring comes. Until then........I'm stuck on the treadmill. Makes me wonder if anyone else who is doing this on the treadmill have the same problem?
I just got done downloading music to my iphone, so I know whats on there and don't have to worry about a slow song coming on since I have more control over that now. I did day 2 yesterday for the 4th time, today is the rest day, and I'll probably attempt day 3 tomorrow. I'm still going to the gym today though to do anything else but treadmill. Ugh.
