And so, week two begins!

I run with the Sisterhood

Today marks the start of Week 2 of the Couch to 5K training I'm doing over at the 'Hood. I truly enjoyed my day of rest yesterday. Didn't do the workout in the a.m. but I finally got on the treadmill around 8 p.m. after coming home from work around 7 and chilling out for a bit. I'm proud of myself for not blowing it off. And proud of myself for getting through it. Then I walked two more miles to a DVD as part of another challenge I am doing leading up to Thanksgiving. I'm rewarding myself now with a bit of computer time and a cup of tea!

The intervals tonight were 90 seconds run/ 2 min walk. I am the first to admit that I am huffing and puffing a LOT and I am super slow, but I just keep telling myself "one foot in front of another!" and remind myself that I just want to get through it. I look forward to the day when all of this becomes "second nature!"

In the meantime, I'm excited. Another day down!


  1. Way to Go, Mary! I'm so proud of you for continuing to push yourself further and further! I struggled today too...don't know if it was because it was warm out or just the 30 seconds longer to run, but like you I just kept going! Feels good to be doing something good for myself!

  2. hurray for you Mary...I use that one foot in front of the other mantra myself when it gets tough. Doesn't matter how fast we finish just that we finish. I'm out the door in the morning to do my Day 1 due to the rain today. I'm excited to see how I do!
