I'm definitly on the couch end of the c25k

Zup Peeps?!?!? First I bring you the cutest little punk

And here's my "pots" ($7 each at Target-course it cost a bit more for the plants!)

I went to work (on time today since the kids are back in school!) and put in my time then it was home, then back out again to get ink for the printer so Jessica could do her homework. Finally paid for Jessica's driver's ed class online too. I think my parents had it easy! We did all our work on paper or the typewriter and went to the library and spent maybe .10 cents on copies. Drivers Ed was free at school!! I wish it was still like that here! Oh you can get the class for free, if you go for 0 period, which by the way there is no bus for.

Got back and went out and did my Couch 2 5K  for the day. Week 1 day 2. This time I didn't worry about the music and just did the program on my iPhone. It tells you when to walk and when to run.  This is this weeks:

Brisk five-minute warmup walk.
Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging
and 90 seconds of walking
for a total of 20 minutes.

Last time I didn't have it working right so I ran a bit and walked around the lake for a total of 40 minutes. This time?


I could barely move my legs by the time I got home!! And that was stopping and turning around when it told me I was at the half way mark. I'm thinking I got a much better work out in that 20 minutes than the 40 last time. I'm definitly seeing why they say only do it 3 days a week and only for the time they say so you don't hurt yourself and wear yourself out. So I'll skip tomorrow and do it again on Wednesday.

I've told a lot of people that I'm doing this now. People are asking me when and where I'm going to run my 5K. I guess that's a good thing so that I don't give up!! I'm planning on

The City of Dublin Shamrock 5K Fun Run and Walk on March 14, 2010

That is if I don't die first. I have a friend that lives close to there and she said she will run it with me. She's also a friend that takes boot camp classes and is a total gym rat so I better get in shape or she's going to have to drag me!

Don't forget the new Biggest Loser starts tomorrow! See you later :)

Wow! I'm impressed. I definitely don't run. I hurt my ankle ice skating when I was a kid ~ that's my story and I'm sticking to it. I do need to get out and walk more.
Good luck on the 5K.

I trained for a 5K last year, did the whole program and ran/walked every day but I never actually entered a 5K race! Now I'm out of shape again.

Good for you, keep it up!

Ooh, I lurve your pots. I don't understand your phone workout program, but then I can barely operate my bare-bones cell phone.

Cute little punk.
Love the pots, very pretty.
Good luck with the running! Rather you than me.
