C25K: Week 8 – Day 1

I walked this one because like I said before that I am doing a 5K this Saturday.  I am trying to save up energy. My muscles have been so sore and tired and if a nice hot shower and bath does not alleviate these aches and pains Saturday evening then I do not know what else will. There has to be other ways to relax the muscles with homeopathic ways instead of using prescriptions or over the counter drugs. I hate taking pills, but if I really got to take anything, like my diabetic medication I have no choice, then I will take them despite my loathing dislike of them. My legs want to kill me all ready and I just want to stay in bed. It seems that even though I went to bed early for the last two nights that it has been very hard to get up in the morning. I do not know how to combat this and the only thing I can do for now is hang in there until I see the doctor in a couple of weeks.

Getting there…

I slept for twelve hours straight yesterday. I must have been tired. I could go for some bad foods that I should not have right now, but I need to stay focused and not give in. I had some cookies yesterday though. I am not going to deny it. Today, I do my run after work and it is more likely that I will fast walk than run. I am going to do a weigh in in the middle of this month because you know…women’s issues from before.

I am a bit nervous about my 5k race this Saturday. I might do a recording of it or take pictures, but then again I heard that is frowned upon in the running community. Oh well, I can still blog about it later! 🙂

C25K: Week 7 – Day 3

Yesterday’s training was to run for 28 minutes… I wound up actually fast walking it because my feet and legs were hurting. Hey, in hindsight I have been doing really great up until the edge of week eight of training. This is why I am going to do the training twice over. I also want to take it easy because on Saturday there is a 5k race that I am running with a friend. Okay, in reality I will probably walk it, but jog some parts of it. I know week eight is brutal because it is the last week.

I have to lose weight. I have to lose weight. I have to lose weight.

I want to incorporate more salads into my diet and veggies and grilled fish for the protein part.

I want to fit into that dress that I saw in the shop and I have a year and half to do it.

Why is this so hard? It is not hard it should be easy, but yet this is proving to be difficult.
