So now comes the pain. I ran for 8 mins tops yesterday and I cant walk today! And going down stairs is torture. I cant imagine being able to run again tomorrow. I had the bright idea of going for a swim tonight but both our local pools were closed to the public for swimming lessons so I had to give it a miss.
I really need to plan this better so I can do something gentle to recover in between runs or else I am never going to make it.
On other news I sat here tonight and decided I would have some pineapple. It cant be that bad its fruit right? Wrong! First mistake was to cut the whole pineapple and have it in front of me. Even though it was a small one I ate the whole thing. Seriously I cant believe I managed to eat it all. How does that work, at lunchtime I cant finish a bowl of soup. Anyway I ate the damn pineapple THEN checked the calories. It was 453 cals. OMG that puts me well over for today and no exercise either. Panic.
But "deep breath" lesson learned. Never sit with more than you should eat in front of you and always check calories BEFORE you eat them.
I will have to do better tomorrow.
Thanks guys so much for the encouraging messages re the run.
Much love x
