Taking a Rest

Wow, am I sore today!  I don’t know if it is the hike from Sunday or my short run yesterday, but something has my body aching.  Fabulous news….I went for a run yesterday and ran 9/10 of a mile!  HUGE accomplishment for me!  Usually, I am dying at half a mile….

Today I contemplated going on another run.  But I am just too sore.  My lower back is killing me…really, it is very painful to even slightly jog!  I hope this is normal….

Tonight I had some grilled chicken and stuffed squash.  And for dessert some Teddy Bears Crackers.  🙂

Hopefully, tomorrow I will be rested up and ready to run some more!

For now, I’m cuddling with this big baby!

Have any of you experienced lower back pain after starting to run?


About journeytobodyzen

Hi! I a girl approaching the big 3-0 who is on a search to find zen for my body. Being busy all the time (full time job, full time grad student, and juggling an internship!) I have limited time to exercise and even less time to prepare nutritional meals. However, I figure a blog will keep me accountable and help me to make some much needed changes in my life! I hope I can bring some tips to help other busy folks as well. Enjoy!

    Good Job on your run!
    I have been slowly working my way up, and now I can run 1.2 miles in 20 minutes.
    Not superhuman speed, I know, but like you I am making progress 😀

    I’ve noticed music helps me a lot. Then I tend to zone out a little bit and forget that I’m getting tireder and more out of breath every second ;P
