C25K Week 3 Done!

Fitness Connection-North Hills
I'm happy to report that C25K Week 3 is done! I felt pretty strong today, but kept the pace low-key, still. I had a professional foot/reflexology massage last night, and that made a huge difference, I think!! I'm glad that Relax Foot Spa is near my home, as I'm sure I'll go back!

I returned to Fitness Connection at North Hills in Raleigh this morning, so that I could soak in the salt water hot tub after my run. I decided to do some upper body strength training after the run, so my arms enjoyed the hot tub soak as much as my legs!

Wheatgrass Juice with Cranberry Chaser
After my workout and soak, I decided to stop by Keva Juice, a smoothie bar next to the gym. I read about wheatgrass juice recently in the book You Are What You Eat, and I decided to try it out today. I ordered two ounces with a cranberry chaser, not knowing what to expect. When I got the plate on the left, I wondered how I was supposed to drink this stuff out of two plastic pill cups with a straight face without laughing! I took this picture first, then chugged the wheatgrass juice, followed by the cranberry. The wheatgrass juice tasted very "grassy," so it was nice to break up the aftertaste with the cranberry juice.

Afterward, George and I joined some other Raleigh Galloway runners who had run outside (in the rain!) this morning for lunch at Panera. It was great catching up with everyone!

Week 4 of the Couch to 5K program looks a little more serious, with more running. Look forward to seeing how I do!

I'm glad you took a picture of the wheatgrass and cranberry. Good thing for the cranberry chaser to offset the grassy taste.
