C25K - Week One, Day 3

I figured I should do updates every now and then, to keep myself going. So today you get a lame update since it's only day 3.

I ran Monday and it went fairly smoothly. I was justifiably sore yesterday, but nothing too terribly bad. Then this morning when I tried to get out of bed I almost fell over. My legs had decided to stop working. They were revolting. In fact, I am firmly convinced that they were trying to detach themselves and leave me stranded. Making myself run today was tough, but I did. My legs were not happy at all (still aren't), but it did seem to be just a little bit easier as far as stamina goes. I wasn't quit as burned out by the end as I was Monday. I really do like this program. The walking intervals make it much easier since I can say "Ok, just keep going until you get the walk cue."

I am currently 28.5" around my high hip area (where my fluff is). I think a good goal right now would be to lose 3". The people who know me will probably tell me I'm being ridiculous because I'm already so small. But I really am unhappy with the bit of baby fat I have left, so I think 3 inches isn't a bad goal. Like I said, my goal isn't to lose weight, just fat.

Also, for anyone who is doing this with me - I just found a fitness blog that said NOT to run every day. You need time in between for your muscles to heal. So start with 2 or 3 days a week for the first month, then add more once you are comfortable.

Make sure to drink lots of water! It flushes out the lactic acid that builds up in your muscles and makes them sore.

I think fitness is always a good bet anyway. it helps the hormones even out. Good job though for giving a update every week.
