After writing this post, both my SIL, Jennifer, and Illini Girl commented about the Couch to 5k program. It’s a 9 week program that gets you ready to run a 5k. I’m going to do it and run the Sprint Thanksgiving Day 5k that we do every year, except I’m going to modify it a little. I think I’ll turn it into an 18 week program since I have 6 months. I can do it. No walking.
I also have to add that Jennifer finished her first MARATHON 2 days ago. In Colorado. With that high elevation. I had no idea it was this past weekend. Let me know how it went. Are you doing another one anytime soon or are you done for a while? I am seriously in awe of anyone who can do that!
Here’s the link to the Couch to 5k program : http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtml
I’ll have to track on here how I do to keep myself motivated.
