It's been too long since I last visited.
This past Tuesday I got back to Couch to 5k after a week off. The flu had pretty much left me with no strength or energy but I felt good and I rocked it! I'm not saying it wasn't hard, but I made it through! The last two minutes are definitely killer. Lungs burning, side aching. I repeated it again tonight. This time add shoulder pain. I added stretches for my shoulders before my runs but I still had pain near the end of the run.
I'm not ready for week five yet. Day one might be okay, it's three five-minute
runs, but day two is TWO eight minute runs!!! I can't imagine it, but then again
a few weeks ago I couldn't have imagined running for five minutes! It truly
amazes me that I can do it.
I'm a little worried about my weigh in on Monday. Since I didn't exercise at all for a week, I had put back on three pounds. Really? Uhg! I was still eating right. This week with the runs and pretty decent calorie days I'm hoping to have at least lost those three pounds again. I know I should exercise more but there is not enough time in the day or week. I just want some quiet time sometimes.
