Yesterday Jack posted a challenge to run a 5K on November 14th.....which was thrown down by Kelly, btw.
Jack, do you have any idea how long its been since I've run?!? seriously.....
And yet I still keep thinking about it....went to sleep last night thinking about it....woke up thinking about it.
I used to run, once upon a time. Not a very serious runner, mind you. But at least for a few years, the Corps made me do it. And afterwards I ran sporadically....until the kids came along....and life got in the way...and...and...and....do you realize that the "babies" I had that got in the way of running are now adults?!? And I had viral pneumonia...twice....and...and....
Oh, who am I kidding?
Ok, Jack and Kelly. You're on. I can do this. Let's see...that's 46 days from now. That's enough time to get ready....
By the way, I did redeem myself slightly yesterday by eating a "fresh fruit only" dinner, and going for a two mile walk with hubby. I felt really good on that walk! Nothing hurt and I felt really energized. Haven't felt that good on a walk in years!
I really love Google Maps. I can pretty much pinpoint my exact route around the neighborhood by punching in the intersections I go through and it gives me the distance to tenths of a mile. And the cool thing is being able to drag the route around in order to achieve the exact distance I want. You all probably know this already....so, just saying.
Well, short post today. Have a good one, all!
P.S. I just wanted to add that I looked up this mysterious C25K that you ppl keep mentioning, and found the site. Better yet, I downloaded the app to my adroid and am starting tonight. I'm going to have to cram 9 weeks of training into 46 days...I can do this.
And I had a salad for lunch, so I'm behaving.
