Today’s intervals consisted of a 5-minute warm-up, 15-minute run, 1-minute run, repeat 3 times. The first interval was a fucking breeze! Like I was born to run from zombies. The second was a bit of a struggle but I made it. Third? I legit thought I was gonna pass out 13 minutes in. I had to take an extra break.
It’s hard not to think of that as a failure even if I did only take a one minute break and ran as much as I could. The point is to push yourself but I’ not quite there yet.
I’m not going to repeat the day. I’m going to proceed with the next run and try and get through that last interval. I am concerned about pushing myself too hard but tomorrow I won’t be running; I have crosstraining to do. I have to do that core blaster that makes my abs hurt so much, I can’t cough or laugh.
My goal is to make it to the 180 minutes a week the Atlas Shape has been nagging me to do but I haven’t made that goal yet. One hour down…
