I am proud of myself for sticking to my schedule and completing week to of the couch to 5k program. The program consisted of 6 intervals of running for 90 seconds and walking for 2 minutes with 5 minute warm-ups and cool downs. I know 90 seconds may not sound like a whole lot, last week was 60 seconds, but OMG I seriously had trouble with it. Although I will say I am impressed how I fought through it no matter what. Today between run 5 and 6 I felt nauseous. I am happy it passed and I didn’t make a mess on the treadmill! Since I don’t feel like I finished strong I am making an executive decision and repeating week 2. I will be more successful if I don’t try to do too much at one time. Baby steps I got to start somewhere.
Also I bought my first sports bras. I wore them this week and since I didn’t get wacked in the face with my boobs I suppose they worked just fine. I am pretty sure on run 4 though I came close to having a wardrobe malfunction. However, when I am at the gym I am forever worried about how I look to other people so I am constantly fidgeting and fixing myself so I look “appropriate.” I still feel the need to hide my big body the best I can. I always choose the treadmill in the back corner so I don’t have to subject people behind me into watching me run. I need to work on that.
