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.
