Run 4 & I Almost Puked

Run 4

I run on a trail that is mostly shaded by trees. These trees have branches that overhang with sometimes these little caterpillars and sometimes spiderwebs….with spiders. đŸ˜±Â Today while I was huffing and puffing under a limb, I almost sucked one of these hanging caterpillars in. PROTEIN! (yuck!)

Day Four  (Week 2):

  • 5-minute warm-up walk
  • warm-up lunges
  • 1 minutes of running
  • 2 minutes of walking
  • repeat run/walk interval 7-times (21 minutes)
  • cooldown walk
  • stretches

Look at me feeling good after my 4th and fastest (totally don’t care about this now) run!

Tuesday start of Week 2! The weather was nice. 69 degrees even with 97% humidity was heaven. So today was the first day of 1-minute run intervals (which is where C25K starts off.) I went out way faster than I should have and—being dehydrated from the day before—it made me instantly sick…which made me question whether I really should be running at all since it was just a minute interval!!!

Luckily, I stuck it out and slowed my pace and caught my breath. Also, the stretch of trail I ran goes slightly downhill at the end. This conclusion made the last couple of intervals almost enjoyable?!

Good News! I have a new RUNNING PARTNER! She *way* further advanced than me, but we are going to run at the same time to give each other support, encouragement, and accountability.

Run Regrets:

I always have run regrets or little nagging things that tweak my brain while I run.

  • I couldn’t play music while listening to the podcast instruction.  I found a temporary solution for this in Runkeeper! It’s not perfect, but it worked and I listened to music!!!
  • I need a new hat.

Self Care:

Awesome Ice Bath

I have man-feet.

If you have read any of my previous running posts (it’s totally cool if you haven’t) you will see mention of my past plantar fasciitis problem and the foot pain I had during my first week of running. So today after my run, in which my left foot hurt, I immediately soaked it in an Epsom salt, ice bath. Aside from feeling GLORIOUS! I’m hoping it will help any forming inflammation. Fingers crossed!
