So I'm feeling pretty good, going into the workout center this morning. Stretched, looking forward to improving my time.
Whoops, there are actually people in there. No treadmills available, but that's okay. I just try the bike out for a bit until one opens up.
10 minutes later, a treadmill opens up and I jump on while reviewing my Couch to 5K instructions.
"5 Minute brisk warm up walk, then alternate between 60 seconds jogging and 90 seconds walking for 20 minutes." Yeah, I can do this.
The walk was easy, did what I normally do, feeling pretty good.
Then I bump up the speed to jog for 60 seconds. Oh wow, I haven't done that in years, I'm not sure I like that.
Okay, back down to a walk for 90 seconds. That wasn't bad. I can do this.
Back up to a jog. Heart rate is severely up. I really think I'm going to throw up on the treadmill, which is not good and will probably come out of my security deposit, if I have any left after my toddler is done with my apartment....
Walk for another 90 seconds, urge to vomit not gone, heart still going crazy, so I stop. The goal is to live to see my daughter grow up, not die when she's 2000 miles away.
Trying again tomorrow.
