Week 2, Day 2

Starting today, I'll just title these running update posts according to what week and day I'm on. Each weekly workout is done 3 days with a rest day in between (HA! Two of the rest days are for CrossFit), and the next week you go on to the next week's workout. You can repeat a day as necessary if you feel like you aren't ready to move on yet.

The good: I survived, I went a lot farther than ever before, and for the first few intervals I had a ton of energy and ran so much faster than W2D1! Cookie was happy as could be. Decent weather.

The bad: I should have gone earlier because it got rather dark; technical difficulties at first (my iphone was set to vibrate, which caused problems, which I eventually figured out); felt like dying near the end.

The ugly: The mosquitos stayed away from my arms and legs because of the deet, but decided instead to attack my face. The worst was when one attempted to fly up my nose.

Tomorrow I might really take a day off... and take a nap... and might possibly wear my pajamas all day.

make sure you take the rest. Your body WILL rebel against you if you don't. I am not good at doing the whole 3 on, 1 off. But I make sure to take at least 1 day off a week. Your body will thank you in the long run!

Part of me thinks I need to work out every day because I have SO far to go and haven't lost any weight yet. But I know that wouldn't be good because your body needs to heal. I plan on running Saturday night, so I'll take today and Sunday off.

Well actually I do have one more curtain rod to hang today, and that's pretty much a workout in itself. The curtains are looking good but omg I hate hanging them!

You might not have lost weight (which surprises me) but you look VERY different. And that whole "muscle weighs more than fat" sucks when you feel like you are a million pounds away from where you want to be, but it is true. You are toning and making your muscles stronger which WILL ensure that your body will be more efficient. Keep at it and call anytime you need a good workout or just some motivation!!
