Fitness Tales...

I have just started week 3 of Couch to 5K.  I have not skipped a day nor have I walked instead of jog/run.  A few times I have almost literally had to kick my butt to get out there ('...c'mon,'s only 30 minutes...'), but I made it.  Today when I started it was 94 and had cooled off to a balmy 93 by the time I had finished.  But I handle the heat better than I do cold and snow and ice.  It will be interesting to see if I can keep it up in the wintertime.

I  have also been following the advice of the esteemed DoctorMama.  She advocates S L O W I N G D O W N...especially for us couch jockeys.  She says to run so slowly that people may point and laugh at arthritic sloth is the way she puts it.  So I am running for time only.  I have no idea how far I am running (even though I run on the track at the local middle school, I am so addle-brained that I lose count of my laps after 2 or so) and I am going so slowly that I am certain I saw a snail laughing the other day (pointing with its little antenna).  This has, so far, not stopped me.

Yay, me.

Darwin at work

We should all be thankful that this guy removed himself from the gene pool.  Hopefully he hadn't yet procreated.

Couch to 5K

I'm doing it.  Day four.  I'm still alive.
