Sweat Gets in Your Eyes...

So today I took to the trails to do my C25K. I was getting a little bored running the track at the fitness center. Of course it was sunny and almost 78 degrees by the time I finished running. Was it better? Yes and no. The time did seem to go by a little bit faster, but the sun made it hot and made my fast more sweaty which got into my eyes which made them burn....and I got really thirsty with 10 minutes to go. But I finished it at any rate. I think I'd like to find trails that are specific mileages. Todays trail was around a park...a big circle but small enough that I still had to run around it a few times. I think it would help if I just had one path with no repeat circles.

Yesterday the family and I went geocaching for the first time ever. What fun!! The mosquitoes were horrible, but it was fun using the GPS compass on our iphone to find a little treasure. I think we are going to do more of this in the future!!

Unfortunately my greasy calzone did not do anything for my bowels. Today's remedy - a pint of blueberries (which though I love, usually don't make my stomach all too happy)and milk - but still nothing. This is frustrating. Oh well.

I'm trying to decide whether to sign up for a 5k next week. I have the one planned for October, but I've been feeling a little less motivated in my C25K and with the race so far away I thought maybe I'd throw one in. Even if I walk half of it, it would at least give me the experience...

Happy Friday - off to get some California rolls for lunch!

  1. You sound to be doing so well with the running, just keep on going, through any tough times and it will get easier.
    I've struggled a bit too with the diet changing my digestion ...but not really found a solution that works. I ought to google it really...
