Week 1.2 (66% complete)
Today was the second day of week 1 of the Couch to 5k program. Today went a little more smoothly than Sunday did, in that the shin splint in my left leg seemed a little less...throbby than normal. Maybe it's finally (FINALLY) going away, and won't come back. Yay?
Having said that, my legs did feel a bearable strain, but that's a good thing, right? It means you're working the muscles in your legs, right? Which is exactly what I need to do right now. 'Specially round the thigh area, ahaha. If someone were marooned on a desert island with me and I died first, they'd have three square meals for a month at least. :x
And I decided it might be a good (and slightly humiliating) idea to take pictures of my progress. It'll keep me motivated to go on, and maybe I'll share them at the end of the 12 week program. :D However...
A bonus: hair! lol
That' my hair - it goes with me everywhere. It's usually in a braid when I exercise, but it has a nasty habit of thwacking me in the face with itself when I go for a jog. So I'm looking for a secure, comfortable bun to put it in instead. :B
Also, I found a place for my PokeWalker (pedometer, for everyone else) until I get pockets, yay! I have a metal non-extending lanyard that has a clip on either end - I attach one end to the 'walker and the other to my sports brastrap and tuck it in to my bra. It's not the greatest solution, as that's where I keep my keys and my iPod for now too, so it's a little crowded in there, but it works for now. Although the moisture may break it, so I gotta get a pocket (and an iPod case, as well) soon!
So all in all I'm feeling pretty swell about the Couch to 5k thing so far.
