Oooouch @ SF Giants

So far this week I went to the gym Wednesday and yesterday (Friday). Yesterday was the first time I've done legs in weight training since March 13th, so 15 days. I'm feeling the pain today. My calves are sore, my quads are sore. It's all sore. I'm going to pass on the gym today and go tomorrow for the start of a new week. I'm going to be starting Week 4 of the c25k program and am, shall we say, apprehensive about the 5 minute jogs. I know I will succeed as long as I stick with it.

I went into SF last night for a Giants game. It was quite chilly and misting/raining most of the game. It was a good time but I ate way too much! I had Garlic Fries and a Hot Dog at the game, plus about 2 beers. Afterward we went to a Salvadoran restaurant and I had 1.5 pupusas (they were pretty big!), 1/2 of a pastelito, and part of an enchilada (which looked more like a small tostada). It was all very good but I was way over-stuffed and I don't want to know how many calories it all was. I'll be eating pretty close to my Points for the rest of the week.

On the way home I saw a sign advertising the SF Marathon in August! That's the one that has a 5k option which is my goal to run. Even at doing each week twice I should have plenty of time to finish the Couch-to-5k program by then. That even allows for a few extra repeat weeks if needed, or sick weeks, which I sincerely hope to not have any more of.

Today I'm going to look at bikes (again). There are two bikes I plan to check out today and I might make a decision today. I'll definitely be posting pics of my bike ASAP if I get one!
