Starting week 6 Phase I.   Recovery run today.  Was stiff at the start.  Loosened up in middle, but some muscles got sore at the end.  I may have gone a bit far.   Weather has changed to cold, but got a good running jacket for Christmas.  Dormant muscles keep firing and getting sore and then recover.

I'm not much of a blogger, but still am working at the program.   Got the puppy on a leash...not so distracting anymore.  I think the fat burning is working more on the dogs then me.  They seam to be leaning up and I started feeding them more food at their meals.  Maybe I should let someone regulate me to a yard and ration food to me.  Ha.  Gained a few pounds over the Christmas break, but my mileage went up to 35 miles for two weeks before the recovery week 4.  I took some extra days off  for recovery...not as in shape as I thought I was and need to be in the middle of the workout rep numbers!  Listening to my body.. I think I have very weak lower back muscles that tighten and stress my IT.  Working hard on stretching and strengthening them as well as legs.
