No More Screwing Around
this is the year! Yesterday I started the program "Couch to 5k" in 9 weeks if I follow their instructions I should be able to run a 5k. I am going to do the 5k for the Riverbank Run in April and I am hoping to continue after that with training and such and run the Missoula Marathon, well the 1/2 marathon in July! This is something I have wanted to do before I turned 40, I have a few years before then but no time like the present, right? Also, my 20th Class Reunion is a few weeks after the marathon, can't think of a better way to get in shape. We have "encouraged" Emily to do this with me, not the marathon part, but the training and RiverBank Run. So her and I headed to the YMCA yesterday and met Maureen and kicked it off! Wish me luck! I will blog my progress. Yesterday was 5 minutes of brisk walking and then alternating 60 seconds running and 90 seconds walking for a total of 20 minutes. It wasn't bad, it wasn't bad. Well, yet!
