So a few notes here: I went running around 4:45pm because I thought it would cool off by then – wrong, wrong wrong! Morning is much better — it was 80° and very humid – yuck! And to make matters worse, my apps didn’t work the way they were supposed to. The C25k free didn’t save at the end so I didn’t get my instagram photo. Luckily, I just had to let it run through the workout on it’s own and I was able to grab the image. And then the pedometer app couldn’t save my time / distance / steps because it reached the limit on the free version. It would have to save over another workout to keep going, ugh.

This morning was hard on my legs. For every single one of those running parts, during the last 30sec, I felt like I “felt the burn” (or whatever you runner-types say) couldn’t wait to walk again. I did some yoga yesterday for my rest day to stretch, and am wondering if that hurt rather than help — kind of making my muscles tired. Not sure though. It was also really humid, and I ran uphill at the beginning which I don’t usually do. At least my mileage went up again. Though not sure how I’ll ever get to 3mi in 30min. Guess I’ll see how next week goes.

And – linking back to my nine week training schedule to link up with all of my other couch to 5k weekly recaps.
