I woke up coughing, which is always pleasant. I wasn’t sure if I was having more allergy issues or not so I decided to wait a bit before I’d go out and jog. After about an hour, I felt good enough to lace up my sneaks and head out.
I get bored frequently and have to swtich routines up to stay interested. Instead of going my usual route, I turned off down a side street and enjoyed the added challenge of the steeper hills as I puttered uphill for the run portion of my interval. Knowing though that my hips don’t like challenges as much as I do, I treated myself to a long stretch as a reward. I think tomorrow I’ll speedwalk around the local track.

I completed C25K Week 1 Day 3:
Today is my first day back at C25K since I got sick. I started off slowly since I didn’t want to spend my run hacking up a lung. After my first interval, though, I felt my body was fully warmed up and upped my speed to where I felt comfortable. It wasn’t about hitting certain goals today but just finishing. I got a little bored with my usual route so I turned off down a lovely side street and really felt my pace increase as I started enjoying this new scenery. And I didn’t cough or sneeze once!
I think my GPS must’ve dropped signal at some point because looking at my readout for today, everythign after the 6th interval is blank so it’s a best guess.
C25K Week 1 Day 2 Stats:
I figure since it’s always hardest for me to wake up on Mondays (and easiest on Fridays), I’ve structured my C25K program so Mondays are yoga days and Fridays are interval jog/run days. I also tend to eat more on Fridays than Mondays so this works for me.
This morning, I did a yoga video I found online for hip opening but halfway through my lazy ass didn’t even feel like standing up to do a sun salutation, so I had to modify it quite a bit. I’ll be looking online for yoga workouts and will post them on Mondays as I do them, if possible.
I don’t bother to put on a heart rate monitor for yogas. I do it to get my mind right and my week in alignment. Not for calorie burn.
