so, last week i signed up for my first 5k.
this girl hasn’t ran since high school. crazy, right?
I’ve been reading lots of material about running – tips, tricks, how to get started. then i stumbled across this, which cracked me up.
i’ve decided to try the couch to 5k program, downloaded (the free version, because i’m cheap) on my trusty iphone. i’m currently on day two. i like the program so far – alternating jog/walk three days a week, slowly adding more jogging/running less walking. part of me wants to push myself, go ahead and just run everyday – i’m fairly excited about this. but i’m making myself take it slow, because i want this to turn into a healthy habit, not an injury.
the color run is on Labor Day – plenty of time to ease into a good result, right?
i’ll keep you posted.
