Bad Day

I started off today's run with really bad hiccups, and if you have ever tried to run with hiccups, it's not fun.  I got 14 minutes into my run and just hit a wall.  I had to stop and walk and could not get myself running again today.  It was very discouraging.  I guess everyone has days like these, but I really wanted to get my full 28-minute run in. 

I think I am going to stop having free days with my healthy eating.  I feel like I get a little carried away when I feel like I can eat a little extra.

My brother Steven ran 3.2 miles (a 5k) today in 30 minutes.  He is rocking it.  Not going to lie... I am jealous.

I have my official weigh-in Tuesday for my blog.  I hope I see a little more weight come off.

Don't be too discouraged. I'm a week ahead of you in the program and I hit my wall in Week 7. Days 1 and 2 were both terrible. I couldn't finish either run. Don't be hard on yourself and don't psyche yourself out. You are doing so well. Just take a deep breath and start again tomorrow.

Just be sure that if you're goal is a 28 minute run, that you at least walk at a good clip for the full time. You can practice walking with high knees, or punch the air in front of you, or do little quick hops for 30 seconds at a time so that you still get your heart rate going. The more creative you are with your workout, the less bored you'll get.
