Today started week two for my 5K training! The workout was total of 30 min., and starting at 5 min. I had to run for 90 seconds every two minutes, for 21 minutes, so I ran a total of 9 minutes. The 30 min. goes really fast which surprises me since I'm doing the whole thing while staring at a wall! When I was done I had that weird tingling sensation you get in your thighs after a workout? Do you know what I'm talking about it? It's feels like tiny bubbles of air popping up, down, and all around my thighs. I love when it happens because, I think, it means I had a really good workout, and hopefully, it's my fat and cellulite dissolving away!!!!! And, of course, when I was done with my workout I was dripping sweat, and, completely, red faced, too. I don't mind the sweat, I guess, because, again, that means I had a good workout, but I really hate how red my face gets! I don't just mean a little red, I mean, really, really red! And it's stinks because it usually stays red for well over an hour - even after I've had a shower to cool off! Which brings me to this:
Reason #19 to lose weight - to not turn tomato red after moderate exertion! It doesn't take much for me my face to turn red - vacuuming, going up a flight of stairs, taking a walk. Yup, even these, seemingly, easy things will make my face turn red! So, I'm hoping once I lose more weight, every little movement won't turn me into a tomato face because it really is embarrassing.
