Couch To 5K Day 1
My daughter and I have talked back and forth about doing a 5K together. We both need to get into shape. I am a hit and miss when it comes to exercising. I have not found anything that I love to do. I have ADD when it comes to a formal routine of exercise. I dont obey the rules of WLS when it comes to exercise. I will do it a few days then nothing. Bottom line I get bored easily. Too easy. So I saw someone post about a Color Run. It looked like it was fun, not your typical run against the time kind of 5 K. I was stoked. Yes stoked. That is a word back from my teenage years just in case you are too young to remember ever hearing that word.
So a little research and I downloaded an app on my new pink IPOD lol
Day one complete. Thankfully the app has you run one minute and walk another. Or else I think I would die. Yesterday on our family outing. My daughter says "Mom you wont be upset if Sue and I run ahead of you". O little girl dont underestimate your momma. Of course I said not at all. She knows how competitive her momma is. I like a challenge and I dont want to eat anyones dust. Mind you I wouldnt mind her trainer leaving me because that chick is fit as can be. But my daughter thats another story. I will be on her heals. Love that girl.
I am also excited because one of my best friends is going to run in the same color run as me. It will all be our first 5k. I say there will be three emotional woman by the end of the finish line.
