This is getting harder. I’m wondering if i’ll need to repeat week 6 due to the fact that my legs keep feeling like they’re going to fall off at any unfortunate opportunity.
I finished week 6, day 2. Warmed up for a few minutes, stretched out, and started running. The first 10 minutes were okay, my shins were starting to hurt just a tiny bit but were bearable enough to finish the section. I didn’t like the walking section – I couldn’t keep my legs moving fast enough and I had to slow the pace to help my legs recover more. The next 10 minutes were tough. I was playing all kinds of mental games to keep myself going. Speed up, slow down. Listen to a song, concentrate on my gait. Look over at RB to see that she doesn’t even look like she’s breaking a sweat. Get pissed off and speed up again, then slow down. Notice that I can no longer feel my left foot. Finally the 10 minutes were over. I got off the treadmill pretty quick and stretched out my legs.
Tomorrow morning we’re supposed to be trying 25 minutes straight. I’m scared to do this as I don’t know if i’m ready. I’m going to try anyways. Maybe it’s just that I need to chalk this up to a bad week. That’s what we’ll go with.
