It is slightly galling to me that I’ve gone from running 5K races (and placing!) every few weeks to needing to start the Couch-to-5K program again.
No, scratch that. It is extremely galling to me.
Yes, I had a baby between then and now. Yes, two kids leave a lot less time for running. Yes, I should be glad that I manage to get out for a
run jog intermittent shuffle as often as I do.
But I want to be a runner again. I miss being able to get out there and go. I know how much happier I am when I do that for myself.
So I’ve started the C25K app – again – and have my eyes set on the Commitment Day 5K on 1/1/16. I’ve made a page where I can report on my progress (or lack thereof) and anyone who’s interested can keep an eye on me.
And I’ll be sure to post pics in January, as I (hopefully) jubilantly cross the finish line.
Because I know I can do this.
