You guys! Ugh! I started the Couch to 5K program today. Thank you (I think) D’Ma for introducing me to this. I wanted to start jogging and ultimately do a 5K but I didn’t really know how to go about it other than just getting out there and running. This program sets it up week by week for 9 weeks. And yes, there is an app for that! It was 2.99, which I thought was a bit high. I don’t normally like to pay more than 99 cents for an app and I’d rather it be free, but it tells you verbally when to walk or jog and you are able to use your iPod with it.
That was a lot of rambling to tell you I about died. No not really but after I was about halfway through I really, really wanted to stop. I wanted to give up, head back to my car, get a big coke at Sonic (anyone else like Sonic pops) and go home and sit on my rump. My legs were killing me and it was freakin hot outside. Oh I just wanted to whine and whine, kind of like I’m doing now! However, I did it. I finished the whole 30 mins and I feel somewhat proud about that, but this is only the first day and I know I’m going to be sore tomorrow.
So, my plan is to jog Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I’m telling you this so maybe, I will feel more accountable and really push myself if I know I’ve publicly announced my plans. I don’t enjoy exercising, but I do want to be healthier and in return be more active for my kids and myself, but I sure do like just sitting on the couch.
