Week 5 is interesting because it ramps up at each day. So today, the first day, it was 3 5 minute runs, interspersed with 3 minute walks. So that one was pretty easy, and it proved to be so. Wednesday will be 2 8 minute runs, with a 5 m... Read more

Week 3! Apparently Mother Nature has it in for me on Mondays. But I'll not be deterred. Today we had lots of snow. I really considered running outside, but with the sidewalks covered by about 2 inches, and the sides of the road full of s... Read more

Well, it is week 2 day 1, and of course, it is raining again. At least I have Plan B figured out, so I went to the rec center again and did the workout on the indoor track. Is it possible that week 2 is easier than week 1 was? Or did week... Read more

They say that the first step is the hardest. That is my thought right now, as I have just completed Day 1 of the Couch to 5K program. Mother Nature tried to derail me. I was thinking I wanted to do all my running outside. It is pouring r... Read more

Since we were out of town this weekend, we had many restaurant meals and my eating was quite out of control. It was really good and I enjoyed it, but way over my calories. Last night, I got in a time bind for dinner, and ended up going thr... Read more
