losingit: (tiny little t-rex arms)
This morning I went to the gym and finished up week 1 of my C25K program! It actually wasn't that bad overall. The first interval was a bit of "GRRRR" but I made it, and by the last one was surprised at how quickly it came up.

I did get new earphones, so I wasn't spending half the time once I got sweaty arguing with the earbuds I was using. I hate earbuds. I don't think my ears are the right shape for them. I either need something IN my ear or ON my ear. Not the weird in/on mesh that buds do. Well, not the free-flying buds. The new ones I got are technically ear buds, but they're the kind with the over-ear clip to hold them in place. MUCH BETTER!!!

And I'm not gonna lie - I did pick a treadmill in front of an air vent, so I had cooling as I ran. Advantages of getting to the gym in time to get a good one! :P

There was a "coach" (my gym doesn't have "personal trainers" but they have people who do small group training...today he was roaming and helping as needed) today who was helping someone else on a treadmill and noticed I wasn't exactly sure what to do with my arms. He told me to think of my arms when I'm running "like tiny little t-rex arms" that are just kind of there. It made me laugh, but it seemed to help. So yay for tiny little t-rex arms!!

My next date with the treadmill is on Thursday. Woohoo!

Did yoga meltdown a little while ago. I managed to stay in the held Rolling T (ok, I realize that makes no sense unless you know the program... Jillian has you moving in each pose, then you hold the last one for 15 seconds. So by "held Rolling T" I mean the last one in that circuit) for all 15 seconds without tumbling out of the pose onto the floor. Yes I was shaking, and yes I was at the point of collapsing into said heap on the floor, but I pushed through and I made it! :) Woohoo!!!
