Run #7-That was a hard one

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

I woke up with a bit of a headache and a little stuffy from allergies this morning but I went for a run anyway. Today was the hardest day so far. Right about 1.5 minutes of running I would feel like there just wasn't enough air and I would barely make it to two minutes. It was all I could do not to stare at my watch and count the seconds. Then the recovery time walking just felt too short too, like I barely recovered before it was time to run again. I've been reading up on breathing techniques but it didn't seem to help much. Also, it is really hard not to be a heel striker when you are feeling tired. It was just a tough day.


Sixth run

Monday, July 18, 2011

I didn't add any minutes today. I decided I would run for two minutes, and at the end of the two minute interval see if I felt up for adding another minute. I felt like I would have really been huffing and puffing, so I stayed with two minute intervals of running today. We will see how the week progresses.


Fifth run

Friday, July 15, 2011

Last week I could tell I was making progress between runs. This week I can't. I really don't know if I am ready to add another minute to my run interval or not. I may try and add it and see what happens and how I feel. Or I may try another day or two at this week's numbers. I don't want to increase too fast, but I don't want to underestimate myself. Hmm. What to do? Got the weekend to think about it anyway.


Fourth Run

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Heavy wet misty fog today, but less windy. Today seemed a little easier than Monday but hard to tell. Muscles seem to hurt less after each run and I seem to be starting to recover more quickly.


Third run

Monday, July 11, 2011

This was the start of week two of my "running" program. That's in quotes because it is still more walking than running, but I am slowly making progress. Went at 6 this morning to get it in before work. It was much chillier today, and overcast. The fog was really wet (and never burned off today.) I never took my fleece off. Then I decided I had time to walk to work so DH could have the truck today. Then I ended up walking home too. I'm tired.

    emoticon Make sure you drink water prior so that you are hydrated. and if you need to interval run/walk..better then running once and never doing it again because your too tired. You have taken action!!! Thats all you need the rest will fall into place. emoticon
