Couch to 5 K
Monday, August 23, 2010
Couch to 5 K the 1st week sounds easy enough, I know I could have done it earlier in the summer when walking the big hills in the area. But with summer and visiting nephews I backed off the exercise gained several pounds and cannot do things I could then.
A month ago when taking nephews home my sister in law gave me her gazelle I have been using it almost daily ever since I got it. Really burning up minutes/ hours on it I have been feeling really good and thought I was going to get through the first week without a problem. Day 1 kicked my butt. I am still up a few lbs from what I was early in the summer. I'm sure that has something to do with it.
Well I'm hard headed and it may not be easy but I'm not giving up although I must be careful to not over do it and cause more problems with back and hips. Will see what happens rest of week. If I can keep going I will, if not I will lose more weight, keep exercising and try again.
