My calves and thighs are so sore, its not funny. I'm glad today is a "rest" day from the running at least...though I might try and do some time on my bike at some point.
But I've got to drop the kids off at daycare (next week school starts for my son....and the 9/7 my daughter starts her PreK). Then I've got my Weight Watchers meeting this morning. Its Tuesdays at 10AM. Since I work every Tuesday 1-9pm I can fit it in no problems. I used to go to a meeting on Sunday mornings, but I like to have the option to sleep in! lol I can't sleep in during the week because of school..
I have some time after my meeting to come home and change for work.. I suppose I ought to get off my butt and maybe start chopping my dinner salad for work.
What worries me is tomorrow with the C25K... I don't know if I'll get hubby to kick me out of bed early to get it done... or try and do it after work. And if I'm this sore now... well, it is going to be harder to make myself do it.
Don't mind me, I'm just whining out loud a bit... I'll still do my best. Now let's hope the metal monster (the scale at my meeting) is kind..... ;)

You know, I could really leave the entry right there and it would give you an idea how it went.
At first it did go fine... I did the walking warm up, no problems..even got through the first two running and walking segments no problem. After that... well, I ran what I could and walked the rest. I tried to balance pushing the envelope just a bit vs listening to my body. When I got back to the house the sweat was rolling down my face. I'm sitting here recovering with a big glass of my cranberry-lemon ice water. (I have it as a shared recipe.. basically a gallon of water with 3 tbsp of unsweetened cranberry juice and 6tbsp lemon juice in it.) I will sometimes add a packet or two of splenda. So its very low calorie flavored water. ;)
I must be a nutball, but I am contemplating riding my bike if only for a little bit. Maybe 10-15 min tonight and some more when I get off work. (I work 1-9pm)
I've already assembled a salad to take to work, as well as have beef vegetable stew in the crockpot for hubby and the kids. Well, hubby and our daughter... our son mostly eats "cold plain chicken" -- baked chicken breasts that are cooled in the refrigerator.
Speaking of hubby he was a bit bashful about some of the compliments/comments on yesterday's blog entry. He doesn't think supporting me is that big of a deal..or that he did that much. He just doesn't get that some people out there DON'T have that kind of support. That they might face indifference or downright hostility from their significant others at this change in lifestyle/habits. Change is scary to some people, it really is. Thats why I wanted to say... I know how lucky I am.
As for the C25K... wow.. I'm not giving up..but whew... that was a workout! And I feel glad that I did what I could. Next time, or the time after that will be better. If I have to repeat week 1 for four weeks then so be it! LOL Good thing I'm not planning on entering a 5K until 2011 sometime.. lol
