I can see why people quit in Week 4 now. The amount of time I spend walking is now equal to the time I spend running. There is now a 3 minute running interval squeezed in for added fun. I was able to keep up with the running surprisingly but I worry next week will do me in. Perhaps I will need to do Week 4 twice. My body wants to quit for sure. Luckily my mind wants to continue on. I hope my body doesn’t give out on me and I just go flying off the treadmill at some point. Wouldn’t that be a site!
Ran on the treadmill again today. I hope to run on the path around the gym next time. If only I can figure out how to get to it. I tried to use RunKeeper but there didn’t seem to be a setting for running on the treadmill to use with my workout that I entered manually. It will be useful when I run outside but on the treadmill it just seems pointless. I was able to track the total distance on the treadmill itself and then entered that manually into the RunKeeper after I had completed the workout. Not ideal.
After the crazy workout I did yesterday I thought doing the program today would help my thigh muscles relax a bit. Nope. I can barely walk up the three steps from my garage to my house. Really really sore now.
In other news: I found a fun item at Safeway yesterday. Starbucks Iced Coffee. The jury is still out on whether or not I can actually drink coffee (it usually makes me sleepy). But for now I’m happy to try the iced coffee as it is pretty tasty.
