Pete helped me make sure that I got up this morning for the gym. We headed there in a sleepy fog and picked out treadmills next to each other.
I walked, ran, jogged for 40 minutes and I HATED EVERY MINUTE OF IT.
I know it will get better again and I'll look forward to the gym, but for now I really dislike it.
The only good thing - I realized that I don't need to go from walking to running. I know that this is going to sound stupid... When I started with my trainer I had been fast walking on the treadmill at about 3.5/3.6 for 40 to 60 minutes. She developed a plan for me to use slow walking to warm up, fast walking and then running at a 5. So from then on I'd walk fast at 3.6 and then put one minute of running at a 5 in here several times in the 30-60 minutes I was on the treadmill.
Last week it occurred to be that I didn't need to go from walking to full out running. I could jog. This was such a revelation to me. Silly as it sounds, it never occurred to me to not go from walking to full out run like someone was chasing me. I can walk at at 3.5, jog at about 4/4.1 and run at a 5. This is what I am hanging onto. The fact that I can put a 1 minute full out run in but also 2-3 minutes of jogging also.
I hope the hate disappears soon.
