Things I learned today.
My body will not let me run if I have a) gotten less than 6 hours of sleep and b) fasted for 2 days beforehand.
I am home on my couch, thoroughly defeated... and feeling very shitty. But, like I said. it's a learning process. I got through my first 3 minute run, and my first 5 minute run, and then I hit the bathroom. I hadn't gone because of the juice so I guess the movement helped me... move. And you know when you sit down after working out hard and not cooling down? You get all hot and sweaty and have (personally) a pounding headache. I got back on the treadmill determined to finish, but I only made it 2 minutes into my 3rd run before I decided it wasn't for me. I had a Seder last night (Jewish passover dinner) where I ate some extremely delicious (and non-running worthy) food, then came home and talked to my Colorado boy til after midnight.
I am determined to finish this series this week and stay on track... so what I may have to do is run Thursday and Friday on my cruise to get both runs in. Then Sunday I'll start week 5. The little podcast says you must skip days while training... but what are your thoughts about that? I'm not entirely out of shape... so the only thing I really would worry about is not giving my knees a break. I guess TECHNICALLY, I could run thursday and saturday, then do my Week 5 run on Monday. But our boat docks on Monday at 11am. I guess I'll just have to see. I'm very disappointed in myself. I guess now I know!
