So today was supposed to Week 2/Day 1. But I didn't sleep well Sunday night:  My right ankle, knee, and hip all hurt.  This was the leg I was concerned about when I started C25K.  I was ready to give up.  But I decided to take another rest day today and see how I did.  I managed to get 10,000 steps yesterday and am on track to do that again today . . . and I'm feeling MUCH better.  So, after reading over the advice I was given about my first week, I'm going to give it another go tomorrow.  I am planning to repeat week #1 and run at the slower speed as I talked about on Sunday's post and see how it goes.  I will keep you updated!!

I have found that paying attention to my post workout by hydrating and intensive stretching really helped some of my muscle issues (when i ran cross country in school and again now that i'm training for my 5k). My favorite routine is Runners Yoga, a sequence i found on Pintrest with detailed explinations and photos. Don't let the term "yoga" be intimidating...its a simple series of stretches i did on my living room floor with the cat trying to burrow in my hair.

Good luck and serious KUDOS for listening to your body!!
