Day 4 of "The Wagon" ;P ....I.PUSHED.HARD. And my reward was that I Completed BOTH workouts today!!! WOOHOO!!!! I did not begin my running app workout exhausted or dreading it, like I did yesterday. Today, I was motivated and ready to go! Of course, my running app made sure I got tired throughout the workout, but I was determined to finish it today, and I did! Yay! Now....when I got home, I can't say the same about heading into the "30 Day Shred" with Jillian. :P I had to push a little harder to get that one done! Again, I did it at my own pace but made sure I didn't take too long of breaks between each exercise. I upped one of the exercises with a 15lb. kettlebell, but other than that, that's the only change I made from yesterday. (Yesterday was the first day of upping weights.) I will take a 2 day break this weekend and be back on Monday....hopefully. I don't want to jinx it. I want to stay on this wagon, even if that means I have to build bars around it to keep me in!


1) Running App: 35 minutes COMPLETED! (Still on Day 1 of Week 1 for this, but I don't want to burn out, so I will stay here for another day or so, then move forward to Day 2 when I know I'm able to push through it. I know that's not how the app is supposed to work, but I want to do it at my own pace. Like I said, I don't want to burn out and then get discouraged again.)
