Wild hair in my eye

I know that's not the real saying, but it's more PG friendly than the real thing.

I decided this morning that I want to run a 5K. Or more accurately, I want to be able to run a 5K. I'm not a runner. I hate running. Even as a kid I hated it. The only time I'm willing to run is if a bear or a zombie (or a zombie bear?) is chasing me. Even then I'd have to think real hard about whether it's worth running or if I should just let it get me.

So then I woke up today and decided this is something I want to do. I have no idea how long the insanity will last, but I'm gonna run with it (literally). So I found out that the ap I use to track my walks has a couch to 5K trainer built in so I used that today. I wasn't able to complete all of the run intervals, but I tried. The path around city park is 2/3 of a mile and I was only at a little over two loops the trainer finished so I finished that loop at a walking pace. I didn't get anywhere near the 5K distance, but I ran some of it and finished out at 2 miles so there's that.

It's going to take me way longer than the 6 weeks the program suggests, if I finish at all, but that's ok. I know I can't do this program every day, the trainer at the end said to come back for day two in 2-3 days. I'll have to do day one again next time, but I want to be sure there is a next time. I think I'm going to go swim tomorrow afternoon, try a new (to me) zumba class Monday night. Tues & Wed I have parent/teacher conferences so if I do anything at all it will be a mile walk on the track on my planning period. So... maybe Thursday I'll get back to the 5K trainer.

Wish me luck guys.
