I commenced my training programme today, in a bid to prepare myself for the marathon. This consisted of jogging for half an hour, with walk breaks in between. This also became the day where I realised how unfit I am.
I came back home and did my stretches..and I’m still in pain. I know is to be expected, though what’s worse is that I’ve potentially developed some lower back pain. This is not good, as it indicates that I’m weak.
I thought about my training programme again, as I know that I still need to do it. But I now needed to change it to incorporate a form of strengthening. Having previously done weights on a regular basis, I realised that I needed to incorporate this again into the programme. I also decided to train via endurance exercises at home, and see if I can do both.
For now however I shall rest for the day and get some much needed sleep. I bid you…goodnight!
