C25K Week One Redux: Baseball, Worms, and Breathing Oh My!

Today, I drove my sore behind to the track to try C25K Week One again. Yes, my butt is sore, and I don't know why! I didn't do much this weekend other than walk 4 miles on Friday, recovering from a party on Saturday, and then C25K today. Anyway, we've been getting some rain over the past day, and the track was wet, full of worms that committed suicide, not to mention a WVU baseball game was going on a few fields over from myself (nothing like Don Henley's Boys of Summer suddenly blaring to scare the crap out of you while you're trying to run). I had a clean run today! Yay me!! I really focused on my breathing, and it worked. In through my nose, out through my mouth... whereas before I was just gasping through my open mouth. Clean run all around, didn't end ONE interval early. I think I might be ready to move on to Week 2 for my Tuesday morning run.

Speaking of Tuesday morning... I'm going to be having food issues this week. I'm already scheduled for two dinners/receptions that I have to go to for work. Then on Wednesday, a friend and I are going out for dinner as an end of the semester treat. Basically, when I know things like this are coming up, I try to eat as clean as possible during the day-- lots of fruits and veggies with some lean protein-- to counterbalance the badness coming at night. At least I know on Wednesday I can order a steak or fish, nothing too bad for myself, but Tuesday and Thursday are beyond my control. Damn. Just when I was getting back on track, the end of the semester ruins it for me.

Congrats on making it all the way through!

I finished the last workout of week 1 today...but I'm not sure I'm ready to move on to week two yet...maybe at least one more time. I'm still really dead at the end of it...but maybe that's the point, just keep pushing.

When we get there, maybe we can run a 5k together. =)
