UNLEASHING MY INNER ATHLETE

I have just started a new program which has me doing drop sets and super sets. I havent trained this way before (for any reasonable length of time) and I found it really challening and motivating. I did chest and back today and found msyelf working harder than when doing straight sets. It was great. Straight after the weights I headed out for my first continuous jog with no set walk breaks. My aim was to do 40 minutes because at a slow pace, I believed this was achievable.

So off I went and after about 5 minutes I was already starting to think about having a walk break. But I pushed myself on to the next intersection and then to the end of the shopping centre, then to the college, then the next street, next turn off, roundabout etc etc. You get the drift. I refused to check the time and I just kept going and going. When I arrived home I looked at the time and found I had jogged for 35 minutes so I added another lap around my block determined to make it to 40 minutes.

I dont know where my Inner Fat Girl and my Inner Lazy Lucy were this morning. Probably off having a private pity party. But this morning my Inner Athlete RULED and I was ON FIRE. Breakfast never tasted so good and my headset was spot on for the rest of the day.

Gotta love it when you slip into the zone and there's no stopping ya.
