Ouch continued

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 I believe I can do it!


  1. It's awesome that you pushed yourself and got your run in! I literally cannot move for several days after I do the 30DS!

  2. Way to go! You are doing an amazing job! I've been eating a lot better, but I haven't really gotten the exercise routine going yet - well, except for chasing three kids around everyday. :)
