Haven't blogged in ages (but have been reading blog posts and staying inspired)! This is my third time starting Couchto5K...had an ankle fracture that derailed me...then illness...then the care of both my Mom and Mom-in-Law uprooted my life and running. But now...I'm back!
Got through Week 1 OK...although breathing is a slight problem, but I'm concentrating on that to help me with my future stamina. I did develop an inner left thigh cramping the next day after my third run...not sure why...but looking up why that happens seems to have a multitude of opinions on the reasons for this cramping and how to prevent it. I'm keeping all this in mind to prevent it from happening again, if possible.
Have also had to alternate between running outdoors and using the treadmill...hoping the treadmill isn't going to be a problem (it's so different than running outside).
Anyway, want to stay connected by blogging as it really keeps me committed to running.
