I Did It, Vol. II

Week I, Run/Walk 2 of C25k completed!

In my sixth walk after my sixth run, I got a stitch in my side. I put my mp3 player on pause and walked while breathing deeply until the stitch evaporated. I started to feel disappointed in myself at that turn of events, but I reminded myself that the point of all of this is to get healthier, not to hold myself up to some ridiculous standard. I'm always telling you guys to be positive about steps you take, even if they aren't perfect (because when are we perfect, really?), so I applied it to myself and felt better.

Right as I was done, I felt like I might be about to get the low pelvic cramps I mentioned, so I sat down on a bench for a couple of minutes and breathed deeply before walking home.

But I did it!

I'm going to take two days off, I think (though I will do some sort of exercise), and finish the run/walks this week on Saturday. We'll see how sore I am tomorrow.

When I got home and stripped for my loving husband to go wash my sweaty clothes for me, I had him feel my outer thigh while I flexed it, and he was so impressed at how hard it is getting.

Rock on! Way to go on the thigh muscle.

Hmmm, you are lucky he only wanted to feel the muscle! And as for him washing your clothes, you lucky thing! Good work on building up the running stamina, I for one am hopeless at running, and incidentaly, have no desire to run! Each to their own.

Woohoo, congrats on finishing Day 2! I've tried the C25K a couple times, but always gave up because something got in the way of the schedule and then I got too far behind. I'm planning on trying again once I start losing weight and feel more comfortable running. Keep up the great work, Veggie!

Take care,
