I hate running! I think I would rather have dental work done.
I made a choice that I want to be as healthy as I can be for another pregnancy. So Chris and I both have been eating healthy, counting calories and RUNNING. A close friend suggested joining her in doing the Couch 2 5K program. They even have a nifty iphone app, and if you know me, I am a sucker for any app so I downloaded it right away.
This program claims that you will be able to run a 5K in 9 weeks comfortably. I have had 2 friends tell me they LOVE this program and it made them fall in love with running. I HIGHLY doubt this program will make me even remotely like running, so I am out to prove them wrong.
Chris is doing the program with me and so far we are week 2, day 2. It's not bad and every day it gets easier. I do feel better after wards and like I accomplished something good, but I still hate the act of running. So what makes it better?!... MUSIC.
You are talking to the girl that can do the Cha Cha Slide & Cupid Shuffle while running. Chris can tell when one of my favorites come on because he said I run differently and I do arm movements and everything. I think you would wonder whats wrong with me if you drove past me, seriously.
So I'll let you know in 8 weeks how this program did. IF we make it there, and we *like* running, I think we will book a 5K for real. How cool would that be?I had some more pictures, but my poor iphone has suffered wine death, so it's in a rice bath and I am hoping it gets better. If not, I will be spending a million dollars on a new one this weekend. But all my fun pictures of our morning workout where on my phone. This one is the only one from Chris' phone. Enjoy.
