C25K, Me!

I had a busy earlier part of the day. We went out to a fun play center for kids and Kavi had fun. We met up with two of my friends and their baby girls. It was the first time we went to this place. It's about 20 minutes away so not too close, but I may go once in awhile.

But what I really wanted to mention is that I started the Couch-to-5K plan a week ago! I finished week one and then started week two yesterday. This is part of my goal for getting healthier. At one time I wasn't sure if I should attempt this because I have arthritis on the side part of my ankles and I wasn't sure if they would hurt. So far, they don't. So I am going to keep going to see what happens. It really does start you out nice and slow. I had already been attempting some jogging, so I handled week one fine. Week 2 is a little harder and definitely more tiring. So far, these are 20-25min sessions. Not too long!

The funny thing about this is that I jog/walk around inside my house. It is way too hot to do this outside and I am not even going to try that. I have enough room going back and forth between certain areas of the house to do the full amount of time needed, in the a/c. Even in the a/c, lots of sweating occurs by the time I'm done!!

I still wonder if I will actually finish this whole program. It's a 9 week program, but if you need to repeat a week because the next one still seemed too hard, you can. Each week gets harder until you are finally able to jog 5K, which is 3.1 miles. Wish me luck!

Good luck with that!
Sounds cool....challenging, but good. :)
3.1 miles. Hmm. That's twice around the boulevards on our street. Run it? Whoa. Maybe jog/walk. Hehe:)

Yess!! You will totally rock the C25k!! I loved that program, I hold each and every run near and dear to my heart. I feel like I grew so much from the first day to the last. I hope that it brings you many benefits, I can't wait to follow your progress!

You know that I believe you can do it!! If you get tired of running around the house... take a .7 mile hike over to my house and then do a "cool" down in my pool!!!!
Love you!
