This afternoon I headed out to begin Week 4 of C25K...I had high hopes! I knew my "long" run would be 5 min ("short" run was 3 min) and I knew I could do it, because I had already done it a couple of times before. I started running and immediately my right calf started hurting. I was trying to stretch it out while running (yes I did look pretty funny haha) but it didn't work. I kept going though! I refused to quit! After the first 3 min run, I spent my walking break trying to stretch it out. It didn't hurt to walk, just run. Then I started my first 5 min run. It still hurt pretty bad and I just couldn't make myself go any faster. I'm pretty sure anyone could have caught up with me just by walking at this point. I still did not give up... I completed my 2nd 3 min run and then began my last 5 min run. Then the princess decided she was tired of being in her carseat and started crying. So I had to stop and get her out of the carseat and calm her down. After I got her calm and back in the carseat this happened...
So sweet :)
Well apparently when I put her back in the carseat, I hit my garmin on the side and stopped my timer. I figured this out a mile later...I was kinda upset... I was trying my best to do 3 miles again today, but my Garmin only reflected 2 now. So what did I do? I decided to keep walking so my Garmin would say 3 miles. Yes, I am that OCD! haha :) The princess was happily sleeping now, so I walked another mile. All in all I did 4.2 miles! :) Even though my runs were kinda ehhh today, I still got it in and added a nice walk to it! I enjoyed just being outside in the sunshine with my princess!
I do, however, need a running do-over. So next time I head out, I will repeating Week 4 Day 1! :)
