My Couch 2 5K…

May 24, 2012

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?

    I read about this 6 weeks ago when you posted it. It took me a little longer to kickstart; I just started I am getting ready for the third night. Good luck!
