First of, hello everyone. I did not fall off a cliff, but I think I had a bit of a funk after we moved, and I kinda withdrew into myself and my family.
That said, I have decided to do a couch to 5K program. Over the course of the next eight weeks, I am going to walk and run at intervals to train myself to be able to run a 5K in a decent time. The first day was a 5 min warm up, 6 runs at 1 min each, and 1.5 min walking between runs, followed by a cool-down of 5 min. That first day was relatively easy.
Today I did the second day. It was a warm up (5 min), 8 runs at 1 min each and 1.5 min walking in between, then the cool down periods. I feel pleasantly tired now.
Now that it's late spring here, there are a lot of fresh, farm grown vegetables. I want to start incorporating them into our meals here. Baby girl loves her veggies; she already eats black olives, bell peppers, asparagus, broccoli, fresh spinach in addition to the 'normal' kids veggies. Fun fact, where we live now was once the source of asparagus for the entire country.
