Am into week 2 of the beginner 5k training program from podrunner. I am doing an hour session - 28-30 minutes of the podrunner and then back to the truck with some other playlist. It’s a straight-out, straight-back route and I am covering in total about 6km. The dog gets to run free for most of the trail, and I just have to watch out for skunks and snakes. First two weeks I have dropped a lot of the bloating, which looks good on the scale.
But man am I still cranky and gloomy. I am doing a good job of hiding it though I think.
