Couch to 5K

Yep, you guessed it, I've joined the bandwagon.  You did see my post about I confess- I totally copy everyone, right?

Anyway, things have just gotten frustrating.  Job stuff, bad weather, etc. etc.  So today my hubby and I were talking about it all, and it didn't go well.  That's when I decided I needed to run.  Now if you know me well, you know this is completely out of character for me. If a bear was chasing me, I would seriously consider whether or not I could take said bear in a fight before starting to run.  I'm the scrappy sort- comes with the red hair.

I could take him!!

But all that aside.  I decided it was time to strap on my tennis shoes and go.  I downloaded the app and did the first day.  I was doing well, except for two things:

1) I am COMPLETELY out of shape.

2) I live in the mountains, which means I have to run up hills.  Running up hills = out of shape Kate about to DIE

But I did finish.  However, I'm going to redo this day.  I couldn't run the whole time for every run portion, and I think I need to go baby slow.  Did I mention I was out of shape?

I also think I need to find a better place to run.  Preferably some place flat and without cars.  Living out in farmland means narrow roads and no sidewalks.  That's not so great for wanting to survive the run...or maybe I'd lose some more calories dodging cars.  ;)

Oh and hubby & I have got over our spat.  Mainly because I was too tired when I got back to talk.  ;)

Good luck! I am sure that you will do great! You will be running circles around me soon! Running and I don't get along since my pelvis injury delivering Anderson.
