So, I mentioned yesterday that I was quitting caffeine. Well let me just tell you, it hasn't been a basket full of puppies.
I'm already struggling,
This is my 'oh look, I'm back in the game' selfie.
While I was trying to play catch-up on blogs yesterday, I saw that Juliette and her roommate, Jacey, had started doing Couch 2 5k. You see, about a month ago, I had started Couch 2 5k. I completed the first 2 weeks of the program, and then stopped because I lost everything. Meaning, I was imatient, updated my iPhone to iOS 7 a couple weeks before the launch date, and I lost all of my contacts, apps, music, pictures, etc. When I restored my phone, my app wasn't showing that I had the paid version - just that I had the free trial version. It costs $0.99... I know that's cheap, but I ALREADY paid, and I refused to pay again simply on the principle of the matter. So I quit.
But, because Juliette started the Couch 2 5k, I decided to restart it... because that's how the cool kids roll. Well, I decided to restart the 'trial' version and then give myself the trial 3-day period to decide if I want to pay for it again. All was fine and dandy until half way through "Week 1, Day 1", I realize that C25K did, in fact, remember me and it picked up where I left off "Week 3, Day 2". Seriuosly app? You remember where I left off, but you don't remember that I paid for the darn thing? Lame. I digress...
It wasn't until I was breathing way too hard, and starting to sweat profusely (despite that frigidly cold weather), that I decided to look at the app and see how much longer I had left. Then I realized I wasn't on Week 1 - Day 1, and it was kind of like: Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore. I wasn't mentally prepared to do start from where I left off, but I pushed through like a trooper and finished strong. And then, I had so much energy (weird, I know) I decided to sprint intervals (MY OWN TIMED INTERVALS) for the next 30 minutes to keep my heart rate up. And then I came home and died. Yep.
