I am a virgin runner again



Although I am not the most professional out there I did enjoy running last year. I let it go and for too long so now I am paying the price.
I am out of the closet and I am admitting I am running again. I had to start the couch to 5K program from the beginning as I have been doing no exercise besides housework for too long. I am excited to say I have a babysitter for the morning and tomorrow is day 3 of week 2.
I have a 5K tentatively planned for the beginning of May as this is about the end of the 9 week program so I should be running 25-30 minutes 3 times a week by then.
I blabbed about this many times last year but again I would highly suggest the couch to 5K program to anyone who is interested in trying out running. It is a program that will have you off the couch and running a 5K in about 9 weeks. No rush is necessary-if you don't feel up to it you just repeat the week and move on next week. I have never run a day before last year but in August I am proud to say I ran a 7 mile road race.
My goal this year is to try to get to some of the same races I did last year. I am a pretty person and I really want to improve those times. I am not going to get down on myself about time lost I just need to get back into it.
Want to join me? Well than at least be at the finish line with a cocktail!
