I hope no one minds that I am keeping track of my progress in this thread here.
After finally being able to get rid of all the fluid retention from my first two weeks, I went all teh way up to almost 168! From 163.4. I am now once again down and my number today was 162.2. I feel good; better than when I stArted my C25K on 16 July. Tonight will be W3D2. I am confident, but my medial shins hurt. I know it is as a result of the stability shoes the running shop had me try and I returned them. they were Mizuno Wave Inspire 8 and just plumb we not for this girl. I am now the proud owner of awesome dark purple and silver Brooks PureFlows. They work my calves and hammys a bit more than I am used to and I think due to how my foot strikes the grounds may have a bit of shin pain while breaking in this new pair, but nothing like what I experienced with those Mizunos.
Cheers to the week ahead, conquering those little milestones and tiny voices that tell us to stop when we really want to push through.
