Week 3, Day 1: Complete! You thought you had me there for a second, didn't you, evil c25k? You thought you could crush my dreams, that this would surely be the end of me, right? Certainly I would give up, or maybe even drop dead...
But I didn't. I didn't and I won't. Just go ahead, give me another 3 minutes to run. I dare you.
Not that it was easy, or anything. I was feeling pain in places I didn't know could hurt. I now understand why people hate running - they start out pushing themselves too hard, and feel the way I felt, and then say "heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell naw". I completely understand that. At about 2 minutes into my first 3 minute run, I was thinking the exact same thing.
And then I kept going. That's the trick. And to do it again, even though you know what it's going to feel like now that you've done it once. To know that you're going to feel pain, but to do it anyway.
I don't think I've ever done that in my life until today.
Thank you, evil c25k. I owe you
