At 15 minutes things started to get really tough but for reasons other than fatigue:
- Sweat began running down onto my eyeglasses and into my eyes but my towel was not within reach (and I did NOT want to stop!).
- The little window cooler was set on the lowest setting and the vent was aimed away from me.
- The song that came on for my last minutes was "Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson... draggy... HARD to run strong in the last stretch with a song that makes you want to swing in a hammock sipping a fruity drink
Still, I kept remembering: If I don't do it today, I won't be stronger tomorrow.
Then at 18 minutes I remembered what Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper of Biggest Loser always say - "You can do ANYTHING for a minute".
I ran not 18, but 20 minutes without stop. I needed that. =)
