So i got through week 1. I have to say that despite doing a fair bit of regular exercise (weights and cardio) i struggled but got through it. This week has been tough as I have had a lot on work-wise so was travelling and lost a day. I woke up today tired and with a food fog from a take-away last night. My bed really did not want me to leave. I finally got up and mucked about with my polar heart watch, the chest strap for the watch, my iphone for the podcast (I prefer that due to the music - the app is boring).
Finally I made it to the park and I dragged my chubby frame around the park. Better than nothing. It's 6pm now and i'm shattered. I have a couple of questions:
- Will the tiredness go away?
- Should i eat before i run? (I typically run as soon as i get up, but my trainer insists that I eat my breakfast an hour before i train with him, but when I asked him today - he said that I will burn more fat if I do not eat prior to my sessions and just to hydrate.
I'm also worried about the transition to week 3 as it seems a lot to go from 90 secs to 3 mins. Wondering if I should repeat week 2 as I do not feel that I have finished with that yet, especially as my breathing is a struggle by the end of the interval. I'm a chubby chap and I can control my breathing when i'm working on a cross trainer, I find it hard to do when running.
Any help, tips and advice welcome.
