We did it!! We ran. It was more challenging convincing myself to get out of bed as I laid there all warm under the covers than get myself running. Somehow, I willed myself out of bed and my husband soon followed.
The 8 intervals of running 1 minute and walking 1.5 minutes were not that bad. The part of starting a new workout that I usually dread is the muscle soreness and tiredness that goes along with it. I remember starting to work out a little too keen after not exercising for a long period of time in the past and making myself physically ill, like I might die afterwards; fever, surging pain, extreme exhaustion.
Despite being out of shape and not having exercised in several years, I feel no pain after the first run. No soreness or muscle fatigue. I can’t decide if I’m not that out of shape or the first week’s program is not that difficult.
I’m feeling good after the first run, better than I thought. I hope this will keep me going through the week.
