c25k week 4: run 2

today's run was the same as monday's: 1/4 mile run, 1/8 mile walk, 1/2 mile run, 1/4 mile walk, 1/4 mile run, 1/8 mile walk, 1/2 mile run, bracketed by a 5-minute walk before and after.

about 2/3 of the way through the first running chunk, i thought, "ugh, i don't want to do this." but i could see the end up ahead, so i knew i could do it. the second chunk, i saw i was about to get a red light, so i put on a burst of speed. wow! what a great feeling! did that again when i was almost home, just for the fun of it.

i have felt a few twinges in my left foot at night, but that's it so far, thank goodness.

and boy was i tired yesterday! holy cow. didn't help that i did not get enough protein during the day - it was a going away party for my boss, so i had cake for lunch. by the end of the day when my son and i were getting back on the bicycle to ride home from the library, i just wanted to lie down. then we drove downtown for dinner, and i almost fell asleep at the table! got the kid to bed early so he could have extra reading time - and i fell asleep! woke up to him yelling "mum, i'm done my book," went to turn out his light, and then back to sleep again.

today i will do better. i am bringing salmon to have for lunch, with some salad (lettuce, mayonnaise, and celery) and some fruit to snack on. i've also set up reminders in my calendar at work so i will snack at regular times rather than waiting till i'm ravenous.
