I helped my husband dismantle our old deck today (he's going to build a new one), and by the time we were done my already sore back was killing me, so the last thing I wanted to do was exercise, BUT I got on my treadmill anyway. I walked a little over 2 miles, and I was walking fast - well, fast for me - at 3.8 mph, and I wanted to slow down so many times, but I kept thinking to myself......if Chubby can walk 8 miles in one day, and if Mary can run 5.25 miles in one day, then I can make myself go just 2 miles, at a good rate of speed!!! And thinking of that helped me finish, so thank you Chubby and Mary for inspiring me!! :)
I'm looking forward to Week 7 of my C25k training this week - I have to run for 25 min. straight Mon., Wed., & Fri. I, finally, put some music on my iPod, and used it while I worked out today. For the last six weeks, I've just been staring at a wall while I was on the treadmill, so it has been pretty boring, and it was so, so much better working out with the iPod today!!
