Well, I started a week late, but at least I did it! Week One complete! And suprisingly to myself, it was pretty easy. The hardest part was talking myself into GOING to the gym! The first week, I had to start by briskly walking for 5 minutes, then jog 60 sec, walk 90 sec, jog 60, walk 90, and on and on for a total of 20 minutes. It went by fast, felt great, but also made me red faced, out of breath, and slightly sweaty! (Sweaty is a miracle, I have zero sweat glands on my face, but my hair got pretty wet!)
As it progresses I'm nervous, because already next week I will be out of town for a few days! I have to make sure I stick with it no matter where I am, and that includes during my week-long mission trip to Mexico coming up!
Wish me luck! I'll be running a 5k in no time.. I hope.
