I started something this week. It's been something I've been thinking about for a long time. I quietly set a goal for myself, not really daring to say anything, afraid to say it out loud. Not that it's a big, huge thing, but it's kind of big for me. I decided, quite a while ago, that I would run 10 kilometers by the time I turn 40. 10k is definitely not a marathon, but it's something. Definitely more than nothing....which is where I was a few years ago.
I did C25K (Couch to 5K) a while ago and I can really recommend it! I was pretty much starting out at a zero fitness standpoint. I had a lot of excuses though and I kind of needed them to keep it from being overwhelming. I wouldn't run in the morning, after dark, in the rain, in the cold, in the snow and I avoided anything that looked like a hill. I've shed some of my excuses over the past few years. I'll run in the morning. And after dark. I hate the bad weather though. But no more excuses. This time, I'm ALL IN!
So this week I started C210K. It's been great! And it's fun starting it at a standpoint of semi-fitness. I'm keeping it challenging by running in the hills. GO ME! And I'd love some company! Here's a link to the program. Be warned! It's addicting. ;) Click here!
In other news, work continues on the house. I'm getting so impatient! I'm so excited to get started on the interior. I took some pics on the way home from my run the other day. It was so pretty at sunset.
