Humidity is the Devil. Or Debil if you're the Waterboy's momma. :)
I completed Week 3 Day 2 today! It was a lot harder than Day 1. I am blaming it on the humidity. Texas humidity stinks. I feel like I am breathing underwater most days. As soon as you take one step out the door, sweat starts pouring from your body. I wish we could move somewhere where they have all four seasons! That would be fabulous! But until then, lets talk about my run! I started out pretty good with the first 1.5 min. run. My shins were not hurting! Then the 3 min. run came...Could barely take in a breath! But I didn't stop! I kept going, said a few choice words, but kept going none the less. The second 1.5 min. run is when the shins started hurting. Made it through. The last 3 min. run was a little better, because I knew it was the last run of the day. Shins sill hurt, but I still had a mile of walking to go before I stopped. I decided at the last quarter mile that I wanted to push myself and time a quarter mile run. Luckily the track I run on has markers, so I started at one of the 1/4 markers and timed myself to the next one. Exactly 3 minutes! I was so proud of myself! I'm really pumped about my next run! I iced down my shins when I got home. I found these lovely ice packs at Academy for $6. They have served me well.
I have tomorrow off from running, but I'm hoping to get in a little swim time to work my arms. And since I will already be breathing in water, I might as well go swim in it! The hubby and I are leaving for Dallas on Saturday morning, and I have to work all day Friday, so tomorrow will be packing/errand day as well. I will be busy busy! I am looking forward to tomorrows breakfast though! Look what I found tonight!
Yes! It's Peanut Butter & Co's Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter! I have been reading all about this on my fellow blogger's website's and cannot wait to try it in the morning! It looks like I will have another food post after all! :)
