W4D2 – bah! humbug

I’m so disappointed…I had another rough run today.  I made it through the first three run intervals but for that last 5 min run I just couldn’t muster the energy to do it without walking.  I’m bummed.  I was hoping Day 2 would prove to be a little easier for me to complete since I mapped out a relatively hill-less route.  But of course the sun decided to shine this morning (it’s been overcast for the last two weeks) and the temps soared really fast.  I guess I can use that as my excuse – regardless, I’ll be repeating Week 4 until I can do all three days without stopping to walk.

I have a 5K scheduled for next Friday night (Electric Run in Charlotte!), I’ll do my best to run as much as possible knowing full well that I’ll need to walk some.

  1. Hang in there. You’re doing way better than me. Mostly because I’m not doing any such thing, I have personally deemed running to be dangerous ( 🙂 ). However, you’ve made it this far, you might as well keep at it.

  2. Just keep on keepin’ on the best you can. this summer is a doosie! If you read on the C25K site, they encourage you to stick with a level until you feel comfortable to go on to the next. No shame in that. Every BODY os different and has different needs. Don’t be afraid of the ” pause” button. It can help you collect yourself for stronger sets. I do Week 2 Day 3 early in the morning – it’s a hard set. You’re doing great!
