Running... I likes it!

That is, I have completed my first week of running. And sadly enough, this is a feat for me. The program I’m using is the Couch-to-5K. (major emphasis on the couch for now). And it is really great, I use the free podcasts that Robert  from Northern California made. See what good things happen when we share the internet and talents and resources – those good things include getting my butt into shape. So thank you internet and Robert.

Memorable Moments from Week One Include:

  • Not realizing that the program should first be completed on flat surfaces, and nearly dying on my first hilly run.
  • Dropping my mp3 player and having it freeze (I never realized up until that point what a *huge difference* listening to music makes when running.) In that moment resignation hit and I was not sure if I could continue. But that thought only lasted for .02 seconds. And yes, thankfully I did complete the run.
  • Not planning my running route only to realize that end of my first run – and when approaching a nearly comatose state – there were still 2km to walk home. Up a steep hill.
  • Sunglasses are a necessity, not a want.
