C25K: Week 6 – Day 3 (REDEUX)

So it turns out that my running partner did not do day three of week six this past Saturday either due to the torrential desert rain that seemed to turn into monsoon season. We decided on our running day two days ago, on Tuesday, to make it up instead of starting week seven. This throws me off and it throws off my moderate OCD-ness and now we will not end on a Saturday, but a Tuesday with the App.

Today will start week seven and I thought I was going to die doing the last day of week six. My sides hurt, my calves hurt, my feet hurt, and my muscles are still sore from Tuesday. I need to take a warm shower and then a bath to ease my muscles. I know I took one the second week of training because I was not used to it at all. There are only two more weeks left in the training app. This is the final stretch and I have to see this thing through. It is not over until I either puke, faint, or die.

C25K: Week 6 – Day 1

I would like to contribute the notion that yesterday’s run was difficult even though for some reason it was almost like the runs at the end of week four, but more like the beginning of week five. I think the main difference is that it is getting warmer earlier in the year. It is not enough to get out the shorts and short sleeved shirts, but when you are running outside or exercising outside then yes, the temperature makes all the difference especially when you live out in the middle of nowhere in the desert. This time my legs were really hurting and I still had to do the grocery shopping afterwards.

When I got home I ate dinner and then twenty minutes there after I passed out literally on my bed around seven and slept until two in the morning. I stayed away for about ten to fifteen minutes before passing out again asleep until ten minutes before my alarm wakes me up at five the next morning.

With that being said, I think my exercise routine is going well and I would like to do a video blog on YouTube. But, I am not sure it will be received well because even this website is still in its baby stage. Mostly if I do blog on YouTube it will be for any hiking adventures or photos and stuff like that. The reason for that is because I can not afford more bandwidth or GB or whatever it is called to hold everything and keep it all up on the site. I know I have 8 GB worth for starters, but as all of us tech people know is that can fill up fast. I hope that makes sense. If money and bandwidth were not an issue I would post videos and pictures directly to the website.

I hope to go on some hiking adventures soon. I do not know when I can make a trip out to some easy going hiking spots, because you have to start out easy and become more physically fit before taking on bigger hiking trails. I am actually excited thinking about it.
