Couch to 5K Day 2

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.
