I Got My Butt Kicked
Thursday, October 11, 2012
Tonight I attempted the Couch25k W1D1 workout. It kicked my butt. It was more of a beat down. I barely made it through half of the workout. I ended up walking through the second half. My chest was on fire. Hours later I'm still coughing. My legs and feet felt like cement. I couldn't control my breathing. I nearly puked.
I'm not ready to throw in the towel just yet. I really would like to do my first 5k on January 1, 2013. Tomorrow I'll do 30 minutes of walking and on Saturday I'll repeat half of the Couch25k W1D1.
I don't think of tonight as a failure. I learned what I am able to do at this stage in the game. I got my butt out there. I didn't use lack of proper gear or my weight as excuses.
Here is a photo of me after I got my butt kicked by Couch25k. I look a little cocky but trust me, all I could think of was my lungs felt like they were on fire.
