Man I am in pain! But a good pain. A pain I can own! I woke up this morning to my body being tight everywhere. I could feel every muscle in my body, and they were all yelling at me! I was very worried about what the day would bring. Today was week 5 day 2 of Couch to 5k so I was very worried I would not be able to complete the 8 minute runs. I really wanted to complete them so I can keep moving on, I have not had to repeat a day yet and I didn't want to start while I was still in the interval training!
From the moment I got up I started stretching and drinking water. At 9:00 am I went out to do my run. I was nervous but determined. I am excited to say that 35 minutes later I accomplished two 8 minute runs! Of course the rest of the day I could barely move...even with stretching!
So tomorrow I think I will take a rest day. I worked out 5 days this week so I think I can afford one rest day! Especially because Tuesday will be my 20 minute run! This will be the first time in my life that I run 20 minutes straight! I guess it was the first time I did 8 minutes also...so I believe I can do it!
