IDEA - Day 27: I really struggled today
Monday, July 16, 2012
Fortunately or unfortunately, keeping within my calories when I make a conscious effort has not been all that difficult for me. Am I sticking to a strict 1200? Hardly. I aim for between 1200 and 1400 calories a day and I seem to do that pretty well.
Where I struggled today was with my workout. I went for my bike ride yesterday and it felt harder than usual. I just kept pedaling but I couldn't seem to get moving. I always felt like I was at a crawl. Today for my C25K training I struggled on the last 3 minute run. I actually had to stop and walk for a few seconds before kicking it back up again.
What's going on? Is this normal?
Tomorrow I bike into work and then to the FKC. Wednesday is my rest day, so maybe that will help. I should mention that I'm repeating C25K week 3 again - I just don't quite feel confident that I can do week 4 yet.
I hope that everyone's Monday went better than mine did! Here's to making it through the rough patches!
