Okay, so it took three whole days for my legs to stop hurting from the squats and runner's lunges I did for the first day.
Last night, I went out for a run. I only did one mile, and I walked for 20-30 seconds during each 1/4-mile lap.
It wasn't killing me, and I could have gone longer, but it was late, and I had to get home to get my girls bathed and into bed.
Today at work, more lunges and squats. This morning, I did a plank for a little bit. Didn't count how long, but it's something I want to work on, as well as pushups. Tonight... well, tonight, my daughter has dance class. I might wander around for a few minutes during her class, depending on how long I can carry around Baby Cassey.
It's kind of sapped my motivation to run at the 5k I'm training for, because I've learned that it's untimed. On top of that, I've read that the coloring stations during such races can get kind of bottlenecked, so I know that speed is not going to be something to aim for if I want to get as colored up as possible.
On the other hand, my 5k season starts this weekend and runs through December. It seems like there are races every other weekend at least, sometimes every weekend! So training is still not a bad idea.
