This big girl ran last night and it felt GOOD! I didn't hurt afterward, I was only mildly winded, and recovery time was shorter then it has been for any other trainging session to date! There is something to be said for hydrating well beforehand, and cooking a light and healthy dinner with time to digest before running!
Let me say though, that I am NOT getting arrogant! I am hearing lots of different things about the week four training, and I'm kind of scared! The thought of running for five minutes straight terrifies me and gives me flashbacks of some not so fun moments in High School Gym Class! Yikes!
I am upping my water intake, and am trying to eat more fruits and veggies this week because I hear it can only help when you face a hard week of training! Keep your fingers crossed for me...my first 5K is two weeks from thsi Saturday!
