C25K Week 1 Workout 3

This morning I woke up and absolutely did not feel like running. At all. I was tired, cranky, and completely unmotivated, but I pushed through it anyways. I decided that I would take a 60minute spin class before my run to do some type of cross training. Plus my favorite spin instructor teaches in Friday mornings.

Spin was intense as usual. Today was a strength ride, so you are basically climbing a increasingly difficult hill the entire class. Fun, I know. But the teacher is great and there is a camaraderie in the class among all of the regulars. Even though I hadn't been in months, some people still remembered me AND the teacher came up to me after class and commented on my ride. She said that I was "killing it" since I never gave up! It felt so good to hear that someone noticed my efforts in the class. I really tried to stay on target with the suggested amount of resistance instead of cheating myself and lowering it.

So after I left spin, sweaty and revved up to run. I got onto the treadmill and started my C25K run. I decided not to listen to a podcast today and just listen to one of the  music stations from the tv that is connected to the treadmill at the gym. I timed out my 90 seconds of running and 2 minutes of recovery perfectly until....

I had this intense urge to pee. 

I know, TMI.  But this has never happened to me before. I didn't think it could be that urgent, so I kept on running, but by the end of my 4th running cycle (and there are 6 in the workout), I was running my behind to the bathroom before I embarrassed myself. I didn't even get to check what my mileage was at!

Anywho, I want to try to get back into the gym tomorrow and do some more cardio. Probably redo the C25K workout or use the stairclimber and hit the steam room so I can get rid of some bloat and deep condition my hair. 

Have a great weekend everyone!
