Week3, Day1

Ok, so I didn't run yesterday because it monsooned. So I did it today instead.

The pattern for Week 3 is:

Walk 5 minutes

Run 90 seconds
Walk 90 seconds
Run 3 minutes
Walk 3 minutes
Repeat once

Walk 5 minutes

I won't lie - I was nervous at the 3 minute run. That's double what I did on Saturday. I almost made it. On both 3-minute runs, I gave up just before time was up. That's the downside to not watching a timer (I'm just listening to the podcast), I guess. If I'd known I only had 10-12 seconds left, I might have pushed through.

I'm pretty confident I can do it next time, though.

I'm confident you can do it too!

(Sorry to hear about your anxiety attack. Completely unrelated, I'm getting Mirena taken out bc it makes me depressed, anxious, and so irritable that I've been yelling at Jon and the kids. And the nightmares! I had one last night that both kids drowned. Stupid hormones.)

Way to go!

One thing that really helped me was a Garmin watch. Seeing how far I'd gone was a big motivator. I'll tell you more about it tomorrow! :)
