Day One of Couch to a 5K!

Monday, March 07, 2011

A few friends of mine from work have all started the program, couch to a 5k, suppose to be able to slowly work up to being able to run a 5k, in 2 months after following this program, so, I thought I would give it a try. I finally got up the gumption to make a big purchase a few months ago, and bought myself a treadmill, it was a lot of money, I contemplated it, and still felt guilty about spending the money on it even once i got it home. Im just not one to spend money on myself, I always put my familys needs first, heck, I feel guilty when I buy myself new socks and underwear!! But, I am loving the treadmill, and hoping it will help me knock off a few more pounds. But, must say I cant wait to get walking on the trails again once the snow melts.

    Welcome!!!! I am, and I can not believe it, Wk 3 day 1 yesterday. I am so excited and hoping I can run in July. I have picked a 5K for fun. I just need to get get running shoes next Tuesday.

    I was able, with a sore hamstring, run/walk 2min each and feeling just a little winded after 35min.

    You can do it!!!!
