To be honest, I didn't really feel like going to the gym today. I wanted to, cos exercise is an awesome stress-reliever, but on the other hand, I had pre-menstrual pain and I was like- I really cba! I tend to get a bit out of sync when I haven't been to the gym on the weekend. But I went in the end :) I decided to go on the treadmill that was free and situtated in between two people who were really going for it- in terms of running. It helps when there's people either side of you running too, they spur you on. I have a mental race inside of my head to see who can go for the longest and who burnt the most calories. I'm quite a competitive person.
Anyway, I really pushed myself today. Managed to achieve a distance of over 5K (which I didn't achieve last week) and burnt more than 300 calories. It was quite a mental battle today, my mind kept saying "STOP I can't take anymore," my body was saying "my knees and calves are really aching" but somehow, I kept pushing through :)
I took a picture of my workout summary on the treadmill especially for this blog :
