Okay, so I was still pretty sore yesterday and my feet were in a lot of pain. I walked through it and came home and did some research. I cannot afford new shoes and insoles right now, so I was praying that my other tennis shoes would work better. Lucky for me, they did! I also rubbed just a little bit of dimethecone on my instep and my arches didn't hurt like they had been. Yay!
I decided to take these first couple of weeks down a notch. Instead of running 1 minute, walking 2 and repeat 7x, I am jogging 30 seconds and walking 2 minutes 8x, then increase to 10x next week, then increase to 1 minute running and 2 minutes walking. My body just will not do the full minute each time, and I don't want to get burned out before I even get started. I spent quite a while stretching before and after today and feel really good. Any other time I would have gone longer, but I stuck with it because of the burnout scare.
I have been SUPER tired since starting this program, so I am hoping my stamina will increase. Thank you to everyone who commented on my last blog, you are an encouragement! We can do this!
