I've got an excuse every day for not going. The excuses aren't the real issue. What's at the bottom of bothering me: my nerves about my injured hip. I'm not quite sure what to expect most normal days, let alone if I am to start walking/jogging/running three times a week what will end up happening.
But it cannot stop me anymore. I am going to post
Program: Kiss My Black Ass - Couch to 5K
*Notes on program: her music is great, she is suuuuuper encouraging, but she uses a program for her voice overs and it makes it sound like a helium sucking chipmunk. However, the downloads are free and the music is great. (did I say that already?).
5K - Altantic City, October 2011.
Partners: Bridesmaids - TMG and CV. (there is NO way I could do this without them.<3)
Training Route: Around my neighborhood on pavement (yikes) and possibly the gym.
Week One: 5 Minutes warm-up walk, with run/walk intervals.
Week 1 Playlist, Genre; Hip Hop
1. T.I. – Big Shit Poppin’
2. Flo-Rida – Low
3. Kanye West – Stronger
4. Diddy – Come To Me
5. Black Eyed Peas – The Boogie That Be
6. LL Cool J – Headsprung
7. Missy Elliott – Gossip Folks
Wednesday: My first "real" day of an exercise program.
I died. Almost literally too. I made it through to just about the last "run" section and I was wheezing (it sounds like I am sucking water through mesh into a balloon. No lie.).... BUT I made it. My time was not great. At all, but it was done.
Friday: Day 2 of Week 1
Not much better than Wednesday. I tried to decrease my time, but actually added three minutes. Not sure if it's because I have to cross a major road in our development of not...I'm going to say yes, it was the traffic's fault.
Are you trying to exercise more? Did you make fitness goals with your friends? It's the only thing keeping me motivated - knowing they are holding me accountable.
