Just Do It

Okay. I'm doing it. This time its not something to contemplate or consider. It doesn't need more research, more information. I don't need to restructure the budget to join a gym. I don't need to run it past a few friends, my sisters, my mom. I don't need to organize it all first or prepare my supplies. I don't need a new set of clothes, some special equipment. An outline of events or timeline or a chart or a graph or an Excel spreadsheet or exercise journal isn't going to help.

Last night I finished my second run. I am running 3 nights a week. T-Dad and I are simultaneously participating in the Couch to 5K running program. We have the podcasts and we have each other to keep us on track. After we get the kids in bed, I'm out the door. When I return, he's out the door. We've got a system and its no nonsense. We Just Do It. And it feels good.

thanks looseyfur. Phase 1 - One day down...13 more to go.

I also completed Week 1 of the couch to 5K program last night. :) woo-hoo.

hopefully, i'll wake up skinny tomorrow so I can forget all this nonsense. (i know, wrong attitude.)

Awesome! Keep it up!

Once you hit 3.1 miles, you'll be able to keep on truckin'! A 5k is now my benchmark - once I hit that, I see how far I can go (I'm up to 4.5 miles now).

You can do it!
