Exercise Log 5

As I approach the musical, I find that I'm not motivated to get up early to run. In fact, I'm not motivated to run, period. But I'm still dragging myself up at least three days a week... no matter how much I don't want to! My last log was April 20, so here's what you have missed.

Day 31 (April 21): 2 miles in 27:05
Day 32: 2 miles in 26:30
Day 34: an interrupted run. 1.33 miles in 18:02, when I was interrupted, I realized how much my back was bothering me and stopped for the day.
Monday, Day 36: 2.06 miles in 26:30. This was W4D1 of C25K. I made my time and did better than my best last week.
Day 38: 2.08 miles in 26:30.
Day 40: 2.08 miles in 26:30

Even though I am getting better, I am definitely going to be repeating week 4 this week. It was HARD. I'm afraid to move too quickly through the program, because I don't want to start feeling defeated. Took the weekend off - I have to play piano and sing for two First Communion masses today. I've been having some problems with my voice due to allergies, and running makes me cough, so it's not worth it. Plus, I'm tired!! With the musical being this Friday, I am planning to run Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. If I feel like it Wednesday, that'd be great, but I'm not going to force anything. Until next time!

You're doing great! And giving me a little kick in the butt, I need to do the same -- get out whether I really want to or not!
