well, that was unexpected

So I did the Day 2 workout from Couch-to-5K this evening. And it went so much better than Day 1, which is an identical workout. I mean, it wasn't enjoyable by any stretch of the imagination, but I never felt on the verge of collapsing or unable to speak. When the app told me it was time for the cool-down, I said, "Wait—what? Really?" Who knows what it was that made the difference. Given that the conditions I'll usually be jogging in will be these rather than my Day 1 conditions, this gives me some hope.

There are SOOO many factors that determine how running feels. Could have been the pace, or the terrain, or the humidity, or your tension levels, or how recently you ate, or how you slept, or, or, or. You're your own mini science experiment!

Good for you! I found C5K really empowering.
