Week One, Day One
Husband makes me drink preworkout - says it will "pump me up."
Get to gym where buff guys and the cute skinny girls are already positioned on machines.
Immediately feel like a tub of lard but get my ass on treadmill anyway.
Start Week One, Day One of Couch to 5k workout. Pre workout drink has kicked in and I am, indeed pumped up.
Perhaps too much as my brain won't stop thinking about all the things on my to-do list. To the point that I start to shake. But bonus - I'm 15 minutes already! Finally, my anxiety (on steroids) is good for something. Passing time!
I get through workout and feel... Good. Not too overworked. Not too underworked.
Get home and feel the "crash." I don't understand where this whole "exercising gives you energy!" phrase comes from. I feel like I could fall into bed and sleep for hours.
And my legs hurt.
I suppose this means I did something right.
