Week 6 encroached a bit on week 7, but for a good reason: I got married!!! I took a few days off to plan, celebrate, and enjoy the time with my new HUSBAND! I seriously couldn’t be happier.
And, oh yeah, I only have two weeks left in the program.
30 minutes a day, 3 times a week, 8 weeks total
Week 5 Routine
Start with a 5-minute warmup. Varied 5-22 minute jogs. Finally, savor a 5-minute cooldown.
Over the last 1.5 weeks, I ran Wednesday (10/11), Tuesday (10/17), and Wednesday (10/18) at Crunch on my lunch break. I have to say – it is hot as hell in that gym (especially when wearing leggings- first and LAST time)! I like it cold because my body tends to heat up quickly, especially when running. I can’t be the only one.
I was a little scared to run for 22 minutes straight after taking such a long break in between runs, but it worked out fine. It definitely helps to distract myself with something on Netflix or an audiobook.
It comes down to this: my body can do it, but my mind still isn’t on the same page. Each minute I run I have to tell myself I can do it, that I’ve done it before and can do it again, that I got this. And I do.
