Couch to 5k (or OMG, I'm actually running, and not from a bear, nor am I on fire!)
Well my mother-in-law started this program that is called Couch to 5k. I got interested in it so I've decided to get off my duff and start it too. It basically is a 9 week program that starts off slow and builds you up to being able to run a 5k race. I have never been one for running, but I have been disappointed at my weight and general lack of fitness. I figured if my 50+ mother-in-law can do it, I can too. So when I started last Saturday it took me 30 mins to do 1.5 miles. Last night, I did 2 miles in 28 minutes. Still badly out of shape but it's a start. The plan is to make it to a 5k on Daytona Beach in May. Hopefully I can keep at it and make it. I'm pretty sure I've run more in the past week than I have in the past year.
