But I did it again Thursday, 3 days later. It actually seemed a bit easier, but the dogs didn't do as well. Kool kept tangling his leash around me, and Swift decided to pop a squat and go poo in the middle of our session - even though he had just gone not 20 minutes before! I noticed the running sessions were easier this time, so I was pretty motivated.
But then Saturday came. And I was extremely busy. I had plans Saturday night, and I waited too long to do my program. By the time I got around to it, it was pretty hot outside. I don't do well in the heat anyway, so I decided I would "postpone" my run until Sunday. But then I had church Sunday. And plans Sunday night. So I missed my 3rd session of Week 1.
"That's okay, Amy," I said. "You can just start over and do Week 1 again! It'll be super easy this time." But then Monday came around again, and I didn't want to do it. So I didn't. Then the week drug on, and I was disappointed in myself. But I said, "That's okay, Amy. You can just start again on Monday!" But then Monday came AGAIN (funny how that works), and I. Just. Did. Not. Want. To. Do. It.
I think I got overwhelmed trying to go from not doing anything to working this program 3 times a week. I'm going to make it fit my life. I'm going to change it up a bit. I'm only going to do it twice a week, but I'm going to take twice as long, and do each week two times. I know 18 weeks sounds like a long time (the program is designed to be 9 weeks), but I know myself. 3 times a week is not going to work for me. If I can get out and do it 2 times a week, that's better than 0 times a week.
Wish us luck again!
Since this is supposed to be a dog blog, here are pictures of the boys.
