Relief, you know how to spell it


ahhhhh, today the kids were back in classes at the Y and I did my jogging there (walk 5 min, jog 8 min, walk 5 min, jog 8 min is the actual training. . . i walked 5, jog 8, walk 3, jog 8, walk 2, jog 2, walk 2) and BOY did it feel much better than the street jogging I did on Saturday. 
Thanks for all the recommendations (and the suggestion that it was just muscle soreness). I actually used to run (even did sub-8 minute miles) but that was back in the day and the running was forced - I played soccer from age 8 until roughly 22. About 5 years ago I started getting back into it and worked my way up to running 4 miles (yes, in a row), then I got plantar fasciitis and stopped. Now I am trying to work my way back into it with this 5k training. It currently takes me 30 minutes with the walk/jog combo (which changes weekly) to go 2.20 miles. 

Point of this post??? Oh yeah, it was to say that the treadmill jogging today was much easier than street jogging (and yes, I know treadmills are easier in general since there is no hill/wind resistance), but I am talking in terms of my body. My knee was aching for the past 2 days, but today, after the treadmill, no pain at all. 
With all that being said, I must also say I don't think tomorrow is going to be a good WOW day. . . a weekend of gorge eating doesn't help in the weight loss department, no matter how much you exercise!

5 people are laughing with me:

You are a trooper. Way to hang in there.

I thought about you and your past post while I was on my treadmill today. Good thing I don't brave the open road with the treacherous conditions out there. (I knew there was a reason I didn't.)

Keep on keepin' on!

I feel your pain on WOW. I was in Farmington this weekend visiting a friend and I am not liking the scale at this moment in time. The good news is I now can groom racehorses.

I can't get myself on the street, nor the treadmill......nor the scale. Where, oh where, is my motivation?
