Exercise Log 3

Last week was really rough for me. I think it was the combination of stress, working on the house, and just not getting enough sleep in general, but I did not do anything as well as I wanted to! After last Tuesday, I went back to C25K week 2 - I just knew I wasn't going to be able to do week 3. Wednesday morning I started, only to get so lightheaded that I had to stop after 17 minutes. I did make it 1.18 miles, but I was just finished. It wasn't worth it. Took Thursday and Friday off to try to get some extra sleep in and recover.
On Saturday, I actually went for the time of C25K week 2. I went 1.5 miles in 20:30. Not terrible, but it was a tad disappointing. My allergies were acting up, making it hard to breathe before I ever started - not a good thing.
Late nights Friday and Saturday led me to sleep in on Sunday - I needed to sleep more than I needed to run.

Monday (yesterday) started with W3D1. It was BRUTAL but I made it back to 2 miles in 27:20. Not too terrible - I did have to slow the longer runs down, but I'm pretty excited that my time is similar to what it was before I allowed myself to rest. Took today off - was lifting lots of furniture for over an hour last night, and I am sore and exhausted. Gotta get back on it tomorrow!

Keep it up! I’ve been sick for the past week, and completely unable to exercise. I think the important thing is that you’re getting out there and giving it your best shot. That’s all that matters. :)
