Can I tell you how excited I am? Hubby and I started an 8 week running program today. At the end of 8 weeks we will be able to run for a full 30 minutes and/or 2 miles... I have no idea if I'll really be able to, but, I'm all for trying. I've never been a runner, ran when I had to in gym class and as a cheerleading warm up, but, never for pleasure or by my own eager gumption. Hubby ran cross country in high school, but hasn't ran in 10+ years. He was a bit surprised but actually pretty game when I suggested yesterday we try this program I found on-line. We announced today "Day 1" and you know what? It was pretty fun! We have very different strides - he is 6 foot 4 and I am 5 feet - but it didn't matter too much. And the best part, besides burning some calories, was that it was still a fun 'date' of sorts. Tomorrow is a rest day, and then we're back at it Wednesday. I already can't wait!!! We actually started with 'week 2', we had that option, so, I guess I technically only have 7 weeks to go and not 8. Either way, I am really looking forward to see what happens.
