Today is my rest day and tomorrow am due to do wk6 run 3 which is 25 mins straight with no walking rests!
The weekend I did week 6 run 2 Saturday morning and then in the evening my treadmill at home (it's mechanical and only good for walking on but I still enjoy doing 30 mins on it).
Sunday I went for 'a run'. What I call freestyle... I walk or jog as I feel like, no pressure. It was not a good run. I had some new wireless Bluetooth headphones to try out but firstly it was super windy - in my face, push you back type wind - and my ear phones (hook over the ear ones) kept falling off so I couldn't get a rhythm going even when the wind died down on my way back. Later on Sunday I went for two bike rides with my youngest. One was to the post office. She only learned to ride about 8 weeks ago and was the first time we both rode together. We enjoyed it so much we went out on a longer 'fun' ride later. But I haven't rode my bike for a while so I was sore in unspeakable places lol.
And now my left thigh is hurting!
I don't know if it's from the bike or an overuse overall? I'm trying to lose weight so I exercise every single day since November. As the C25K is getting more progressive I don't know if that means I need my rest days more importantly? But I am afraid of losing my weight loss momentum if I stop even for a day! But I don't know what exercise burns calories without using your leg muscles?
I don't know if my thigh is just one of those aches that it's ok to just push on through? I had shin splints early on and it's not like that. Maybe more a pulled muscle feeling all day when I move or walk?
Now I'm worried about w6r3 .... But at the same time don't want to not at least try it???
BUT a big injury will definitely mess up my weight loss too so I don't want to risk that either!!!
