So, I did it. I downloaded some awesome music to my iphone instead of relying on Pandora to play music. My energy was high and ready to take on the 25 minute run. I was doing ok until there was about 7 minutes left. My legs started to feel like jello, and I started keeping an eye on the time. Which, we all know, doesn't make it go any faster. I was seriously ready to just start walking by 3 minutes remaining. I even slowed the speed down to just a fast walk and thought to myself "seriously, you can run 22 minutes but not the last 3?" so, I sped it up again. And I did it.
At the very end of the cool down when I was ready to get off of the treadmill my legs felt like they were ready to crumble and I couldnt get off the treadmill. I just stood there, playing on my phone as an excuse to not go anywhere at the moment. Which only made it worse. I figured I better keep walking to keep my legs from stiffening up, so I just walked around the gym for a few minutes and all was well again. They aren't sore this morning but. Hopefully I can start week 7 tomorrow and my legs arent incredibly sore.
So proud of myself.
