I have decided that I am running 5K races with the other members of my family. I am "old" and usually use that as an excuse when they run and I walk. I have had it. I am tired of not keeping up with my siblings.
I checked out the internet for some advice and found a great site which has a schedule to follow From Couch to 5K It is almost like a personal trainer. I am too cheap or embarrassed to hire a trainer. Crazy, huh?
This is week 2 for me and I am actually "running" the course. Last week the weather was cooperative enough to run outside but today no such luck. I gathered up my courage and headed for the gym and the treadmill. I have never wanted to run in the gym because I didn't want others to see my pace or the time which I can run. Actually, that sounds so narcissistic. No one is paying attention and I know it. Anyway, I DID it. I ran/walked for about 45 minutes! Wahoo!!! I am still on track.
