Hell had descended upon my world.
I did it. I completed Run One of Week One of the Couch to 5K running program that has been on my mind for nearly two months or so.
Ok. I sort of did it. Instead of alternating between running/walking for 20 minutes, I could only convince my pathetic (very, very jiggly) ass to continue this self-inflicted torture for ten. But. BUT! I then proceeded to walk nearly two miles afterward and I took the dogs for their evening 1-mile walk. (Yes, there is some kind of smugness that comes with sweating. Huh. Who knew? Certainly not me!)
So, I am not totally lazy. Just ridiculously wussy. And very surprised at just what condition my body is currently in. My back jiggled, people. Whoa.
***Some Thank Yous, because Thank Yous are always nice to give and receive:
Thanks to JelBel, AGR, and DG for keeping in touch and reporting back on what kind of activity you've all built into your days. That has really meant a lot as I make some changes to develop a healthier lifestyle! You ladies ROCK. I miss you guys.
And thanks to Swistle, (and the ladies in Swistle's comments) Jess, Devan, and Jonniker for planting this painful idea in my head and inspiring me to get started. Keep up your own runs - you are doing great!
