Maybe a little too well.
I did the workout at my dad’s gym — I got a free trial membership for a week there — at about 1 PM, alone. I’m aware that I did my Day 1 on Sunday, and that’s three days in between workouts, rather than one or two. What can I say? I’m a stay-at-home parent of a toddler who doesn’t have reliable babysitting. I did it as soon as possible, and that was Thursday.
But it really seemed almost… too easy. Like I wasn’t pushing myself as hard as Krista pushed me. I was on a treadmill, since there was no indoor track, and I didn’t feel like running outside (maybe when the weather gets warmer here in Central Ohio). I had a hard time at first, because I’m not really used to running on treadmills — like at all — but it was mostly with speeding up and slowing down when I transitioned from running to walking and back.
But I felt it was easier to breathe than it was on Sunday, and my legs didn’t hurt while I was running. I mean, it wasn’t cake, but it certainly felt a lot easier than I figured it should have. Krista said for her, things didn’t get easier until Day 3 of any given week when she did the C25K program.
Then again, the woman I babysit for on Saturday mornings (she’s training for a marathon, and that’s when they run) said it should be easier for me than it would be for someone who’s heavier. I don’t have extra weight that I have to carry around the track or on the treadmill with me. And Krista said before she started running, she had a good 100 pounds on what I am now. So I guess that makes sense.
But even the next day, I had no pain or soreness anywhere in my body at all. What’s up?
