I did it! I successfully completed my very first week of the Run/Walk schedule! I must say that I was pleasantly challenged by the exercise. It really was fun!
My heart rate stayed in the appropriate zone, which is to say that I was burning calories but not overtaxing myself! I feel adequately conditioned for the challenge that next week’s schedule has to offer. I will be running for 2 minutes and walking for 1 minute, 10 times, which is the opposite of this week.
One thing I have found though is that I desperately need to stretch really well after each run, while my muscles are still warm and supple; if I don’t, my hip-flexors cease up, and my lower back gets stiff. Other than that, I feel great, both physically and psychologically. Hope you do too!
Until next time,Missi
