I can’t believe that I’m actually going to type this but …. this run was fun.
I decided to slow down the runs. If I don’t I will never finish this damn thing. I dropped the speed from 7.0 down to 6.0 on the treadmill. What a difference it makes! It wasn’t too easy but I never lost my breath. Never had that feeling like I was going to drop. Never had that feeling like I want to quit this whole program.
I was able to chill out and get in a zone. I took a deep breath whenever I felt like it. This is freaking amazing stuff! The funny thing is that I was sweating so much it was embarrassing. I got a good workout AND had fun. I really can’t express how awesome I felt on this run.
I have absolutely no doubts about the 8 minute runs now. Hell, I’m so giddy that I think I have a shot at the 20 minute run.
