30 minutes of running OH MY! February 14th Food and Exercise Journal

by Alison on February 14, 2010

I finished Week 7 day one of couch to 5k, actually I jumped it a bit.  I was supposed to run 25 minutes but I ran 30! 2.25 miles!  I finished 2.61 miles in the 35 minutes of the c25k and then rounded out to 3.1 miles in 40:35, shaving a full minute off my time.  Unfortunately I didn’t eat at all before my run and when I tried to do 30 day shred I got shakey and light headed.  Lesson learned must eat something however small before working out.  I only finished 5 minutes of shred but total I still burned over 600 calories.  For breakfast we did peanut butter banana toast with milk and grapefruit needed the protein and sugar.  For lunch I had hot and sour soup and ben had leftover thai food.
