So, why is this time going to be any different? I am not sure, but I am trying to cut myself some slack and truly listen to my body this time. To be honest, about half way through Week 3 I thought to myself..."here we go again". I felt so frustrated and wasn't sure what to do to get over that hump. I got some good advice from a friend who told me to slow down...slow and steady is still running (even if it is at a snail's pace).
After following that one small (but huge) bit of advice, I am doing much better. Do I still sweat like a whore in church (oops, was that my outside voice?), you bet I do. And my butt is worn the heck out, but I am recovering more quickly and not TOTALLY dreading the next workout. Huge progress in my book. Oh, and I forgot to mention....there is an APP for that! The app has made it so much easier to progress through my workout without having to keep track of my intervals. A peppy little lady on the app tells me when to walk and when to run, all the while my favorite playlist is jammin' in the background. It sounds crazy, but it is making all the difference! I am also wearing a heart rate monitor to keep track that I am not pushing myself over the edge. This time I AM GOING TO MAKE IT.....NO EXCUSES.....NO GIVING UP!
Have a wonderful weekend and be on the lookout Sunday for Week 4 of Sunday Snaps!
