I had a plan. All of my horror stories start that way, with a plan. What's that saying about men plan and God laughs? Like that, that's how my plans go. Badly. Yet still I persist in the planning. Silly Jenn.

Today I decided that repeating week 3 of C25K for a third time would just be me wimping out because I'm afraid to run for 5 straight minutes. I no longer wheeze on the last minute of the 3 minute runs that week 3 prescribes, and I just couldn't... Read more
