It’s the morning after and I actually feel pretty good. Very little soreness which means I am not as out of shape as I thought, or I need to work a bit harder today. My shins are a bit sore, which is a problem I’ve always had while running, but hopefully the soreness will go away in a couple of weeks.
I figured since I am chronicaling this fitness journey, I may as well keep track of what I’m eating as well.
Breakfast – Smoothie 225 calories
3/4 cup of Non Fat Plain Dannon Yogurt – 75 calories
1 medium banana – 105 calories
1 teaspoon honey – 30 calories
1 teaspoon wey protein – 15 calories
1/3 cup spring water
3 ice cubes
I usually have a cup of coffee in the morning, but I am going to try to skip the coffee, and attempt to drink more water. My goal by 4 o’clock is to drink 4 bottles of 16.9 oz water.
Snack – String Cheese 80 calories
1 bottle of water down
Lunch – Pasta w/ Broccli 195 calories
This is actually leftovers from dinner last night. I took a half box of Rotelle pasta, and added a steam pack of broccli with cheese to it. A very quick and simple meal. I know its a lot of carbs, but I love pasta and won’t be giving it up anytime soon!
Snack – Chobani Yogurt – Apple Cinnamon 140 calories
2 bottles of water down by 3:35pm, don’t think I’ll make 4 bottles…there’s always tomorrow.
Dinner – Pasta w/ Broccli 390 calories
I love this so I made it again for dinner 2nite. I ate 2 servings of this to increase my calorie count for the day.
Today’s Calorie count – 1030
Total water count – 64ozs
Today I headed back to the track to complete day 2 of my C25K. Week 1 is basically the same thing Week 1 Day 1 of the C25K is a brisk five minute warm up walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes, and then a cool down. So I have one more day to complete week 1.
Day 1 was on Monday. On Tuesday I put my workout gear on, but as soon as I put my sneakers on I knew it was a no go. The blister I was blessed with on Monday was bothering me. So I took a needled, sanitized it, and popped the sucker. I put some ointment on it and let it breath for the next 2 days.
My total mile count today was 2.11 miles, which is 0.61 miles more than Monday, so I’d say that was an improvement. I did a Wog (combination walk/jog). I will say my left shin felt like death after the 2nd lap. So I did a bit more walking than jogging, but tried to push it when the pain subsided.
I’m using a nifty little app from the site http://www.mapmyfitness.com. It tells you have fast you are running, your pace, calories burned, and I’m sure a slew of other things. I’m also using a C25K app for blackberry. It is very basic, and free for 2 weeks, so I’ll try this one out until I can find a better one. It is great because it beeps everytime you need to walk or jog, and keeps time to keep you on pace. I can’t wait until the iphone 5 comes out because they have so many more app options to monitor these things.
P.S. I never made it to REI, its on my 2 do list.
Thats all for now…on to Day 3.
