Today (again after working 14 hours.. three nights in a row this time) this shit has gotten the ever so tiniest bit easier. Mind you, it still pretty much fuckin' sucks, but it's a TINY BIT less sucking.
So, this Wednesday, it's onward to Week 2 : Day 1.
Week 2 is three days of the following: Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 90 seconds of jogging and two minutes of walking for a total of 20 minutes.
Right now I'm telling myself I'm going to try it exactly like that, but that IF it proves to be terribly awful, I'll revert to another session from Week 1. This is my way of telling myself not to get discouraged.
In the first two days my biggest trouble was breathing. Today I didn't have the shoulder cramping as bad but my shins were aching a bit more than before. Again, though, I followed the directions exactly, and as you can see - I survived. I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little excited that I got through Week 1 and am heading into Week 2. A little corny, huh? Since it sounds so easy.
I'll keep you posted.
