1/21 WORKOUT: Ran C25K W6D1 on treadmill 2.63 miles / 31:00 1. incline; Arc trainer 10 minutes; Kettebell 20 minutes
Whoever said you can lose up to 10% of your fitness in 2 weeks wasn’t lying.
Yesterday, I exercised for the first time in almost 2 weeks. As my Turtle support group advised, I decided to ‘ease’ myself back in to things by going back to my routes and completing a C25k workout. All things considered, it was a good workout; I ran at a consistent 10:00 min/mile, which is a good pace for me, and I felt good enough to use the arc trainer for 10 minutes. It felt good to get up and moving again… till I woke up this morning.
Everything hurts. I have knots in my upper back — My hips are tight — My calves are sore. Thinking back, I probably should have eased myself back into things a little more…
Hopefully another run today and laying off the weights for a couple days will ease the pain a little. Or maybe just sitting on my rear watching another episode of Chef Roble & Co will do the trick. We’ll see.
