Week One

My goal is to update this throughout the week. So check back and see how I’m doing 🙂

Cycling

I’m only a couple days in, technically one, but I’m feeling good. On Saturday I joined an Evolution Cycling class at my local gym. Although this class is guaranteed to kick my butt, I absolutely love it! I love it because even though by the end of the class I feel like a part of me is dying, a bigger part of me knows I survived and I’m that much stronger. This class isn’t like your average indoor cycling class. It’s a high energy, cardio pumping, hour long class filled with sprints. Before I hurt my knee, I was able to go 18 miles. On Saturday I was able to do 15.5. Not bad 🙂

Start

This week is all about focussing on my success and just running.

Monday– Today I got up and made myself get on the treadmill. But not before I had a couple mouthfuls of delicious coffee. My goal was two miles at my average pace of 10:31. I won’t lie and say it was an easy run. I wanted to stop and walk around 1.5 miles. But luckily I was able to push through and surprisingly enough, I had to force myself to stop once I hit two miles. I’m not sure how far I would have been able to go if I kept running but I didn’t want to push myself and end up not running later this week. I know my pace is slow but I’m taking today as a success. I got up, ran, and didn’t walk.

What’s your success for the day?

Wednesday– Well I did it, I ran 2 miles at my fast pace of 10:00. And a big part of me wanted to quit and an even bigger part of me felt like dying. And you know what, I don’t feel great after this run. I can’t say I hated every second of it but it close. This was a difficult run and it goes to show you not every run is rainbows and butterflies. But I did it and thats more than I did yesterday.

Friday– skipped 😦

Sunday– My goal was three miles but I only ended up doing 2 Miles 😦

  1. Thank you! I think I just get discouraged because before I got hurt and sick I was easily running 10 miles. Now, I can hardly do two miles. But I will get there!! Do you run?
