Week 3- whatever # I am on....

(Same as previous workout!)

Today was an OK workout. I don't think that I am positive enough about the whole situation. I tend to think "Oh, I ONLY ran that much??" not "OMG! I am TOTALLY AWESOME for making it that far!!!". I'm not sure why this is. I am usually a very positive person.

Last workout I had a very hard time. This time my knee hurt like crazy but I MADE IT! I completed the entire workout with no stops or cheating.

I had a little help this time. I downloaded an app for my iPod- it is made especially for people doing the couch-2-5K program. It is awesome. I can still listen to my music, but it lowers the volume on it every now and then and tells me "Keep going! You only have XX seconds left" and "The next run will be 3 minutes, but you have done that already! You can do it!". I love it. It also told me something I hadn't thought about before. She (a lovely-voiced English woman) told me that I was doing a great job and to "just think, you just ran 3x more than you did just 2 weeks ago!". It was just the motivation I needed. :)
