Several weeks ago, Cathy wrote about her Couch to 5K progress and I jumped at the idea of this program. It was exactly what I didn’t know I always needed.
Seriously, seriously needed.
So I immediately downloaded the podcasts (which I highly recommend) and started the following day.
I took to this path around our local park. It’s a 2.5 mile loop following the Long Island Sound.
I noticed my beautiful surroundings, kicked up my iPod, and took off running.
Then after a single solitary minute I stopped and walked for 2 minutes. I did this 8 times and I was done!
And I got into my car, and giggled and decided I couldn’t wait to do that again.
It’s been 6 weeks now.
I’m up to running for 22 minutes, with walking segments in between. I’m almost to the point where I drop the walking segments, and I have to say, I’m a little nervous.
But these beautiful surroundings spur me on…
Man I love spring!
What about you? Have you tried the Couch 2 5K program? Are you a runner?
What gets you out the door?
