C25K Week 6
First of all, I did the 20-minute run at the end of week 5 without too much trouble! Yay! The worst part was that my iPod's headphones crapped out on me so I had to do the last half or so with no motivating music. Then it finally happened. I choked in week 6. Every single workout since I started (except maybe the first week) I was worried that I wouldn't make it through but I always did. Then Wednesday, day 2 of week 6, I broke. I was supposed to run 10, walk 3, run 10. I got through the first 10 but was really struggling. I was very worried about the next 10 and sure enough, I fell apart after about 3 mintues. I just couldn't go on. BUT, I really think it was just that I was running too soon after eating dinner (chicken stir-fy with lots of veggies, including gas-inducing broccoli (a-ha!) and felt really bloated and blah--I'm almost certain that was my problem and I would have been fine if I waited longer to work out. I didn't really have a choice though, because Paul needed me to get there and back as soon as possible so he could get to bed because he didn't sleep well the night before and had to get up really early. So anyway, I'm just going to repeat that workout today and hopefully I'll make it through.
