i am not a runner . . .

or much of an exerciser for that matter.
I have never hid my loathing dislike of exercise. 
I am just not one of those people who feel good after exercise. 
Despite that I am training for a 5k. 

I am using the Couch to 5k (C25k) program.
So far, I am still alive!
Although, I have been at it 4 weeks and am only on week 2.
I have 3 friends who are doing the program with me. 
And 2 of us have not really exercised in years. 
So, we wanted to start slow.
We did week1 for 2 weeks for us beginners {me}.
Then I tweaked my knee somehow 
and I had to take a week off.
And tonight I will finally finish week 2!

To be honest, 
week 3 scares me to death.
I will have to run for 3 minutes straight
and 90 seconds is kicking my butt right now.
I know 90 seconds or even 3 minutes
 may not seem like a big deal to you runners out there
but just finishing one of those 90 second runs is a huge deal for me.

My birthday is at the beginning of August
and I want to be able to completely run a 5k by then.
That is my goal.
And so far I am SLOWLY completing it!

  1. Good luck, you can do it! I've started running more this year and I've run much farther than I thought I could!

  2. 90 seconds sounds like a long time to me! I suck at running. When is your birthday? Mine is August 5 :)

  3. Best of luck to you on accomplishing this goal!

    You can do it!
