Couch 2 5K
Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Its a double blog day apparently...
On Monday, after work, Hubby declared that we were going to go to the gym. i asked Him if He wanted to do the Couch 2 5K with me. After explaining to Him what it was, He said 'let's do it.' We went home, changed and went down to the river. i have NEVER run in my life, skipping out on Physical Education classes due to my weight and various other reasons.
The first 5 minutes were easy peasy chicken squeezy... that's just walking. The first 60 seconds of jogging, however, i felt i was going to die. By the end of the 60 seconds, i was having trouble breathing and begging for the clock to hurry up. The 2nd 60 second jog started and we started again. Near the end, i was having more trouble breathing and starting to tear up again begging the clock to hurry up. At the end of the 3rd 60 second jog, my afternoon snack was threatening to make an encore appearance and i was crying. my Husband was right next to me through the entire situation, encouraging me and keeping me going because i would've stop running right there... "There is not 'give up' in this honey".
At the end of the Day 1, i hurt and yesterday and today my legs have not felt the best but i can say that i did it. Day 2 will probably be ran tomorrow, which i am not looking forward to but i know i can do it.
Yesterday, i talked to my boss and told her what i was doing. She was encouraging and told me that it will get esater... Today when i logged onto my email, the inspiration from SparkPeople in one of my emails said 'It doesn't get easier, you just get better!' I'll take it!!!!
