Last week, I ran 2 out of the 3 days that I had planned on running, so I decided to walk the track yesterday while I was waiting for Alex to get out of class. I ended up walking a mile. I try to space out my workout day and not run back to back so that I don’t get burnt out, sore, or strain something, which is why I walked the mile instead of just running it. Today will be Day 1 of Week 3! I’m going to get hydrated, eat a light lunch, head out to the track, then go grocery shopping (I’m making a roast for dinner). The schedule suggests running 3 minutes, then walking 3 minutes, for 20 minutes total, but I don’t know whether I’m ready for that yet, so I may end up repeating last week’s, which was run 90 seconds, walk 2 minutes. We’ll see I guess. Maybe I just need to suck it up and stop being a wimp.
Alex and I are currently trying to conceive. Does anyone know whether exercising like this will negatively affect fertility? Everything I’ve read says ‘strenuous’ exercise will make it harder to conceive… I don’t consider this strenuous, but I’m just curious about someone else’s perspective.
