This morning was day one of week 2 of the couch to 5k running plan. I was surprised that I didn’t really get out of breath like at the beginning of last week. My shins did hurt a little- but it wasn’t bad at all and it didn’t last very long.

I think the biggest challenge the next two weeks will be simply getting out of bed in time to run – I have to start getting ready for work at 5:30 so will have to be up by 4:30 to get moving on time. Especially if I want to do yoga afterwards, which I do. Yoga seems to keep muscles from getting as sore after a workout, and running is certainly a workout. I didn’t have the time to do it this morning- gotta be more motivated next time.

I can’t believe I’m getting up that early without anyone making me do it. But then I’ve only done it once- we’ll see how the next two weeks go!
