Week 2 Day 2
of couch to 5k and it was brutal. I got new shoes and this was the first run in them. My left heel was hurting - a lot - but I think most of that has to do with my working for past 4 days and using crappy shoes. I'm going to buy a new pair of work shoes today, I am.... Next my low back was hurting but I'm pretty sure that is due to so much time at the desk. I have been spending far too much time sitting here and not always in very good positions. Sometimes I put my feet up on the desk and that puts a real strain on my low back. Ugh...the dog has gas!!! Anyway, also I started to feel a shin splint in my right shin. Those plagued me when I first started running years and years ago. But once they went away I never had a problem with them again. I'm wondering if it could also be due to the work shoes??? Maybe. Finally, it was hot, really hot. I went a little bit later than normal and I paid the price in temperature. So bottom line, today was a slough-fest but I got through it and that's all that matters..
