So, run 2 on week one completed this morning and do I know about it!! Being completely honest I found it harder than the first run, mainly due to both my thighs hurting even prior to the run. I guess it shows I'm working muscles that have laid dormant for many years!!
The one positive was I found myself jogging faster for the first three 60 second runs than I did on Monday, and I certainly enjoyed it more running at 6am than last thing at night, great wake up call!.
Home made soup, carrot sticks and a mid morning cereal bar will hopefully keep me going until this evening...the one slip I had yesterday was I found myself feeling quite peckish around 8pm so I had a banana and a packet of crisps...more educating the stomach not to crave snacks needed I guess ... then again, it's a marathon, not a sprint, so I'm not going to completely cut out all 'bad' foods just yet.
Looking forward to Friday mornings run 3 and then 2 days recuperation.
Quick question ...does anyone have any tips on how to ease my thigh muscles pain???
