Five Minutes!

That’s how long I can jog at a stretch (or at least how long I jog at a stretch for this week’s C25k program).

Week 4, Day 1
Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then:
Jog 3 minutes
Walk 90 seconds
Jog 5 minutes
Walk 2½ minutes
Jog 3 minutes
Walk 90 seconds
Jog 5 minutes

Yeah, I know, boring. I just can’t get over the fact that I can run that much at a stretch—and I don’t have to drag myself upstairs with my elbows afterward.

Yesterday I started the Couch to 5k running program—a plan to get a couch potato running a 5k race (or at least, able to run 5k) in nine weeks.

I also learned that my treadmill is programmable. The things you learn reading the user’s manual.

In other news, today is my birthday. You may all commence the celebration.
