Friday: Walked with pals at the track. Then later, at home, I rode the exercise bike and worked with the stability ball.
Saturday: Got up and took the dog for a walk - big block - 1.3 miles.
Sunday: After church, I tried to take a nap - got woken up, decided to give up, get dressed and go do W4D1. Didn't work out very well. I got through the 3min run, the 5 min run, the next 3 min run, and gave up during the last 5 min run. I felt way defeated! I laid down, on the ground, and had a little pity party. My chosen location didn't really help the emotional situation. I had decided to train at the cemetary. Anyway. . .came home, talked to my (former) sister-in-law, we both cried and counseled and that was draining - but in a good way.
Monday: rode the exercise bike for 30 minutes and worked with the stability ball.
NOW: trying to get myself pumped to try W4D1 again tonight! I know I should still be upbeat - and pat myself on the back for running a combined 11 minutes - which is SOOooooo much better than I was able to do a month ago! But - like I said last week - I knew my emotions were going to get worse before they got better. Hopefully this will pass really soon!
And now. . .a couple pics of JACOB!
