 There's nothing better than feeling like a boss when you walk out of the gym that you didn't want to step foot in that day, anyway! HAHA!

I was so not feeling the gym today, at all but got in. Trainer had me do HIIT with him and told me to do some cardio, he didn't care what I did today just had to do 45 minutes of good cardio.

I rocked the shit out of my cardio. I'm not a runner, in the least but I need to get to 5 miles in a year; it may take that long because I hate to run, lol!

I hopped on the tredmill, to which I've been stuck at a jog pace of 4.0 (I shit you not!) for over a year. I bumped it to 4.5 and ran a mile and a half which also meant that I shaved about 2 minutes off of my mile! My goal was only to run 5 minutes the stop for 2 and do that for my time. I kept going and going and going and said, okay, I'll do a mile. I reached a mile and was like, okay...how much farther can you go?!? So, not only did I shave time off, I increased by a half mile!! Yippie....for..........ME!

My face was BEET RED but I was proud that I did it! YAY!!!

 

((feeling like a BOSS!))

Sweet! I haven't worked out yet. I've been trying to get stuff done around the house. I'm just taking a quick break.

I started a new program today.  I did the treadmill for a bit, and some other exercises too.  My kids did them with me too, so I'm proud that I started today off right.

AWESOME!!  That's the BEST feeling!  I had one of those runs where I just had the hardest time getting moving.  Even the first couple of miles were rough, but then I found my groove, and felt AWESOME by the end.  It was so rewarding!

GREAT JOB improving your pace!  It's SOOO great when you see those kinds of improvements, especially when you've been stuck for SO long!  Been there!! =)
