So, I mentioned that my friend Sarah and I started doing the Couch to 5k program a while back. I just wanted to update you and tell you that we are still at it! The program seems to be working. I have never felt like passing out or as though my lungs were bleeding. So, win-win.
It's funny, the first time we met up just for a walk during late winter I tried to put on my running shoes only to discover that maternity had gifted me with larger feet. So I wore jeans (all of my stretchy pants had gotten a little loose from maternity wear as well) and snow boots. Fast forward a few months and I am all geared up. Not that running takes much financial investment, but a few key elements sure help. I have running shoes, pants, sports bra, a thing to hold my iphone (with C25K app) on my arm, a baseball cap.
I am starting to feel the part and I am enjoying the progress that Sarah and I are making. Plus there is the built in bonus of friend time!
Our first 5k is probably in August and then another in September. I am really excited as it finally feels do-able!
Do you have a workout buddy?
