couch to 5k program

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Hi everyone!

Sorry it has been so long. I am entering my finals week plus a couch binge days left me down and out.

Okay the pity train is done for now.

Yesterday I was talking to a friend that is going to school to be a cop and she has to get into shape by December so she can be ready for the police academy. Now she is way way smaller than I am and she is looking for a running buddy to do the couch to 5k. I currently weigh 244.2lbs and yes, i can do the elliptical for 30 minutes straight. So i thought sure..... it's not that bad. Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! I have no illusions that I am out of shape (hence trying to get in shape) but this couch to 5k will more than likely lead to my death. I say this jokingly because currently my shines feel like they are carving through my skin as we speak. I know i suffer from shine splints and i have since i was a little kid and ran laps for softball. For quite sometime i forgot how painful it was until today. Wow.. that was quite a wake up call for me.

I silently tell myself that its too painful to do it again, but I am already planning on doing it again on Monday. I will hate myself and curse for being so stupid . But because I figure that for this little bit of pain that I'm feeling is saving me from the disease I surely will get if i don't. A little bit of pain now.. or a heart attack later? I think i will take the pain now, thank you!

cheers my peeps
