This is hard!

So, made it to the track this morning. Week 2 so far is very hard for me, if it isn't easier by Saturday when I go again, I will most likely repeat the week. I would rather repeat a week, then to burn out and stop. I also think I should start using the elliptical on my off days from the track. I wouldn't push myself too hard, but I think it would be good to just get on for 30-40 minutes... with the pace of a fast walk.

My eating is a bit off right now, I'm just so tired throughout the day, that I am not eating at normal times. I actually crashed on the couch for a few hours this afternoon when we got home. I'm not sure why I was so tired, but I could barely function. Hopefully I get some of my energy back soon.

Started Week 2 today!

I decided to take the plunge and start week 2 today... man was it hard! LOL I almost made the decision to stick with week 1 again this week, but figured I could at least give week 2 a try. I did complete it, but it was hard... very hard. Hopefully I feel comfortable enough with week 2 by Friday that I can start week 3 next week.

I did not make it to Yoga today, my Nanny is away this week, and I would not have had time to feed the kids before heading to the Y to drop them off at the daycare. We usually get home between 11:30 and 11:45, and I would have had to be at the Y (7 minutes away) by 12:05 to get the boys settled in the daycare... just not near enough time to eat and run. Next week I will be back though.

Another run done.

I got another Week 1 of the C25K done today. I may end up doing Week 1 again next week, as I am finding that I am having to push myself really hard for this. Which in some ways is sad, but I know that I haven't exactly been the picture of fitness the last few years... just hadn't realized it was this bad. The run consists of eight 1 minute runs, with 90 second walks between each run. It shouldn't be this hard.... should it?

So, even though I got my iPod to connect to my i-nike the other day, I couldn't get it to connect at the track? I'm starting to get a little annoyed, why will it work here at home, but not at the track? If I can't get it to work Friday when I go, I will exchange it for another one to see if it works better.
