The good news is, I've been running! In fact, tomorrow I'll be on Week 2, Run 2 of the Couch to 5k training program. I went through that program about two years ago, running my first 5k in January 2010. I kept up the running pretty well until October of 2010. Then I was in a massive car wreck and stopped running.
|Note: not my actual running attire. Usually.|
So I'm running again, and I like the structure of Cto5k. I'm not starting from absolute zero like I was two years ago, and thus I'm aiming to get through a week and a half to two weeks per week (i.e. each week in the program has three runs; I'm aiming to do between 4 and 6 runs every week). It's interval training, gradually getting me back up to a 5k.
And of course, the only thing I need more than structure is a deadline. So I signed up for the St. Patty's Day 5k, meaning I need to be ready to run the distance in March.
That's the background story. On future Monday Rundays, I'll share running observations, frustrations, and hopefully, exultation.
Also, I'll run.
