Yesterday marked the completion of Week FOUR Day One! I didn't think I would ever be able to complete this particular day. This was running 16 minutes out of 21.5 minutes, twice running three minutes at a time, twice five minutes at a time with only two minutes recovery in between. It was incredibly hard, but not so bad at the same time.
I had attempted this at least three times before and never made it even half way through. I took a week and a half off the gym and any attempt at running and started using EA Active for my Wii. Active is especially helpful when it comes to leg and upper arm toning. I think I was able to complete Week Four Day One because of an increase of muscle mass in my legs. I didn't realize until just yesterday how strong your legs have to be in order to run to any degree.
Anyway, this is getting a bit boring. But, hooray, me!
Here is to successfully climbing that mountain.
