I’m halfway through the first week of the Couch to 5K program. I’ve done 2 out of the 3 runs for the week.
This is my third attempt at this program. This time I’m going to finish. This time I have two races to complete.
I was registered for a race the first time I started this program. I got through week 3 and the blizzards hit. Two weeks later, when we were finally shoveling out, I’d lost my running mojo.
I tried again in the warmer months but was deterred by the heat. I’d rather run in the cold.
I’ve already participated in two races this year but I am determined to run one completely. That’s why I am trying again.
I meant to start last week but had such a hard time getting out there. Sunday, I finally did.
And it was hard.
I expected it to be hard the first time I attempted the program. The second time was surprisingly easy so I hoped this time would be too.
What I didn’t account for was the extra weight I’m carrying on my run. I’ve gained (cough, cough) 10-20 pounds this year. It makes me feel like I’m running through water with weights strapped to my ankles
Time to start eating better and really stick to the running.
Nine weeks and counting.
What goals are you just now working towards?
