start of something…

6 Oct

Today, I woke up with an awfully bad sore throat. It hurts. It still hurts. Hot foods & liquids make it better.  However, today I also started something.

Couch to 5k! or C25K!

I’ve been telling my husband about it for weeks and months about how I’d like to try it.  He got curious yesterday, I guess with the approach of the 1/2 marathon in January, and he downloaded a free podcast for the Ipod that tells us what to run!  Super excited! I did the first workout today, and even though it’s the first, we said we are going to commit.  Hopefully, we stick to it!

Now I understand that a 5k and a 1/2 marathon aren’t the same, but any little bit helps.  Once we finish C25K, we are going to go onto a 10k to try and get closer to the 1/2 marathon.  We don’t want to run the entire way.  We understand that’s not us, but we hope to find a happy medium of running and walking for our 1/2 marathon!  Slowly, building our endurance, I think we can get there, and get a bit healthier in the process!

I’m glad that hubby & I are sharing this together. We are starting something together that will hopefully get us healthy and fit in the long run!

    I LOVE C25K. I started it in the spring and made it to week 4 or 5 – then life got in my way. I really want to get started on it again, I think you’ll like it!
