So, I decided to restart Couch to 5K. I've been jogging for the last several months, just not with a lot of structure or direction....relying more on my heartrate monitor, and less on the time/distance. I've decided that I really do want to finish this out, and push myself past the illusive "28 minute" mark. And, since I'm SO slow, 28 minutes isn't even CLOSE to 5K. My sister in law is planning to do the "Turkey Trot" 5K in November, and I'm really going to make a real effort to finish the 9 week program, and keep training, so I can finish it with her...even if it takes me an hour....lol.
So, I took a new route on my jog this morning, and the strangest thing happened...I passed by a cute little old lady who was sitting in a chair on her front lawn, reading the paper and drinking a cup of coffee. As I jogged by, she stood up and clapped!!! How weird is that. I looked around, confused, and she just smiled at me, and gave me a thumbs up. Maybe I should go past her house everyday... definitely gave me the motivation to keep on going!
