Dear Diary, 02-04-09
Today was my day off from the gym. I would be lying if I said I wasn't ecstatic that I did't have to run today. Yesterday I ran 2.25 miles in 26.01 minutes. I know I defiantly have to speed it up, but right now I am focusing on not dying in the middle of my run. I believe I said I wanted to run the challenge "effortlessly and gracefully," well the challenge is in 80 days and I will need all 80 of them to master that. Surprisingly, despite how much my legs hurts I am still really encouraged and I know that I can pull this off.
My workout last night included about 40 minutes of cardio and 15 minutes of weights. In the research that I did today, my findings show that I need to increase the I time I spend with weights so I can build muscle mass. I will try to implement 20-25 minutes of weights tomorrow. With one day of rest, I hope to turn my usual out of breath grimace into an actual smile.
Wish me luck*
