1. Something to help to time pass without it becoming mundane.
2. Something I enjoy that will also help keep me happy (kill that cortisol).
So as I type I am converting a movie and some T.V. shows I like and never get to see (because I have to be in bed early) to my Iphone. I can walk and watch the show on my phone, the screen is an awesome size and the quality is second to none it's awesome. I can't wait to try it out tonight.
Last night and this morning was my turning point in cutting back on my cardio intensity. I walked at an easy pace. It felt good but it felt easy, why does that bug me? In fact it scares me. I feel that if it's easy, it's not going to work (somebody slap me now because I know you want too), but I will do as i'm told :-)
Before you all leave comments about the reasoning on how it works I will let you know that I am well aware of the fact that it DOES WORK, and I know how it works but when your almost 7 weeks out your mind plays games and it is this time that you must trust in your coach. Your coach will be your eyes, your mind even! Things are a little difficult to judge in relation to yourself at times. If it was somebody else saying all this I would clearly tell them exactly what JD told me, it's different when it's not you :-)
I am in a better place today because I saw Jon yesterday, because of the changes he made to my cardio and training and because I get a day off tomorrow hee hee....SLEEP yay!
I can already feel my happy hormones kicking in as I blog, it's all good. Prepping shouldn't be hell, it's not worth it if it is.
Thanks for everyone's awesome love and support, it's gets me through everytime.
