Since I didn’t go to the gym yesterday my weight remained static. I’m ok with that.
But I did go to the gym this morning–day two of using the 5K running app. I noticed my back hurt a little more than last time. I’ll be doing some extra stretching and I made an appointment with my chiropractor for Thursday. I also noticed that while my legs got super tired about half way through on Monday, they didn’t get that tired until about 3/4 of the way through today. Progress.
I’ve also been drinking electrolyte water instead of the regular stuff. I felt kind of fatigued and well, weird? Out of sorts? Most of the day Monday. Some runner friends recommended electrolyte water and bananas. I’ll add a banana to my work break. I’m already feeling better than I did post jogging on Monday.
Tomorrow I’m going to see my trainer friend B, who I will talk to about starting a basic body weight routine on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I think while I’m doing this running routine I’m going to take Saturdays and Sundays off. I want to give my body time to recuperate and heal from all the work I’ll be doing M-F. But I’m still going to go to the gym on those days. I like going, and I want to keep it that way. So I’ll just walk on the treadmill on those days, 20 minutes should do it.
