Couch to 5K…Oy Vey

Like many people (just take a trip to your local Walmart), I have let myself go when it comes to my body.  Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t kick me out of bed or anything, but I definitely would LOVE to lose 10-15 pounds and have a little less cushion for the pushin.

Last year I embarked on a couch to 5k challenge to ready myself for my first 5k race.  Once the race was over, I was over running.

A year later the scale is reminding me very much of Superman and my weight is going “up up and away”.

Time for a running redo.  Yesterday I started up the couch to 5K challenge again.  There are several ways to do it, but this is the particular schedule I am following:

 The two minute run felt like two hours but I got through it.  My calves were burning and my pride was hurting but as my Sunday quotes blog from yesterday stated “Do not give up, the beginning is always the hardest”.  Amen to that!

Bonus:  Today was a rest day (though I did find time to walk during my lunch break and fit in a yoga class after work).

See you back tomorrow for an all new blog in my 93 days of blogging this summer!
