As of today my first 5K is in LESS than four months!
And I am totally pumped about it. Which is strange, because usually just the thought of running is enough to make me want to gag. But I’m excited.
I start my couch-5K program on Monday. This is usually where the procrastination starts (it did last year)…. one of those…. Eh, I’ll get around to it… moments.
This time… not so much!
I have a method to my madness. I wanted to start this coming Monday simply because it’ll be easier for me. I can follow the 3 times a week program fairly easy….and it’ll be all kinds of easy, it’ll fit into my schedule rather nicely. Since I weigh in on Wednesdays (and today…oops, though I’m 193… so I’m blaming bloating for my outrageous 196) so It’ll be a weigh-in and jump right into my “jogging gear” (i.e. baggy shorts/pants, shirt, and cheap shoes) and head right out the door.
I have an old Andriod that still works…. can’t call on it for crap…. but the apps still work…. that has a nice little running thingie on it. I’m going to see if there is a C2K5 app that I can download….joy!
Then Fridays, which are typically busy, aren’t really that crazy until about 3:00pm…and Monday’s I only have 1 weekely piece of homework due….
So yeah. Works for me.
I’m tried to do some kind of introspection thing to see why I am so excited. All I can think come up with is doing something that literally scares the crap out of me. Lol. Me and running = misery…. but if I actually do it right… I might actually end up loving it. Who knows.
My boyfriend said that he would do it too. So now I actually get a running/jogging/fast walking partner, haha.
I can’t wait though…. I’m actually all “Whoooo Hooooo!!!!!” About it!
So yeah, I’m sure that I’m going to be all complainy and whiney about it when I actually start….but I’m determined!!!!
Wish me luck… well wish my legs lucks!!!!
