I went to the gym tonight and didn’t like it…plain and simple didn’t like it.  I did the warm-up, 1/4 mile jog, 1/8 mile walk, 1/2 jog, 1/4 walk, 1/4 jog, 1/8 walk, 1/2 jog, cool down.  I couldn’t find a rhythm and struggled through most of it.  My legs hurt and my left foot went numb around the end of the second 1/2 mile jog.  I couldn’t wait for it to be over.  BUT, I did it.  It wasn’t pretty, but I made it through.  The good thing is that I kept my breathing steady and controlled.  I’m hoping next time will be easier. I think I need to speed it up to get into a stride, but then I get tired too quickly.  So, I have to find a balance between speed and distance…find something that feels right but that I can sustain…which is the entire point of C25K…building my endurance.  I know it’s working.  I just have to keep at it. 

I ended with a round on the weight machines.  At least that part went well.
