Earlier today, I had posted that I will be using the Nike+ Android application to know the precise distance which I have covered for my morning run. With my alternate day workout and just 20 days since I have begun, below are the numbers:
The yellow line in the snapshot represents the to and fro walking distance to the park whereas the red represents the actual run in the joggers park.
I had decided yesterday that I would be running the first and the second round at a comfortable pace to retain energy for the third round but I couldn’t improvise. It was all hard work today as I felt like quitting in the the second round itself. By the third round my knees and especially my calves were jammed and paining. Yet, I decided to take it a step further and completed my fourth round at the park.
The first, second, third and the fourth rounds were completed in 3.30, 6.40, 11.15 and 15.08 minutes respectively. By the time I completed my fourth round, I was in terrible pain. The inhaling and exhaling technique from the mouth helped in the run and I will stick to it to take the journey further.
In addition, I have decided to add Dates and Soya Milk to my alternate day breakfast to gain energy:
Obstacles like temporary pain and setting higher challenges by each passing week seem to make my journey doubtful but I am determined to improvise.
