To quote myself on Facebook and Twitter: “I FUCKING DID IT!!!!!”
I not only did the 3 minute/5 minute rotation twice, but it was nearly effortless. I didn’t feel the normal drain at the end like I normally do, and that just made me feel awesome. I did feel some new pains in my legs, and an old familiar one in my left knee. That’s a back issue and it tells me I need to add the yoga program I’ve been procrastinating on to my off days. I need to get my core strengthened up.
Honestly, though? The way I feel today, the pain may just be an adjustment. I’m not nearly as sore as I thought I may be and that run yesterday was far and away the most I’ve done so far. It may have something to do with the 15-minute cooldown I had to do. It seems I got a little overzealous on my road route, left myself with about a half-mile walk home. Didn’t mind that at all though.
So hopefully I can do this 2 more times this week and then move on to Week 5. The super happy fun week that ends with me running for 20 minutes straight. And I just got 5 down…heh….
