Couch to Bed or 5K or Something

10:09 PM

In the past week, I've lost three pounds (Woo Hoo)! I seem to be on the mend from the super cooties Ladybug brought home and finally seem to have some energy again. 

I've been thinking about running for a long time. Several years ago, I had dinner with one of my mentors.  I was looking for career advice and hadn't seen him in a couple of years.   When I saw him, I was shocked!  He'd lost a ton of weight.  He told me he'd taken up running, and had run his first half marathon.    I thought to myself, if he could do it, I could do it.  He was probably 25 years older than me and I figured I could do it too.  (stop laughing) 

In my infinite wisdom, I hooked up with a trainer.  Someone who was very familiar with running.  My brother, who was fresh out of the Marines.  Fresh.  Out.  Fresh!!!!!  We started running, and  running and although I wasn't good at it, it didn't suck that much.  Or so I thought.    After a while, my calves started killing me. Like on fire.  I tried to explain it to my trainer, but he reacted like a Marine.  And I reacted like a hormonal woman. And that was the end of training.  I saw my doctor a little while later who diagnosed me with doing too much too fast.  That was like 7 years ago. LOL. 

I like the thought of running.  I don't like the actual running part, or at least I don't think I do.  Jethro asked me what part don't I like, to which I responded "the part where you run".  That all being said, I'm constantly inspired by those that do run, so I'm trying to get into the game.  I downloaded a Couch to 5K app and I'm going to see how I do.  Anything has to be better than Couch to Bed like I have been doing. 

I want to be around to meet Ladybug's grandchildren, that's going to require some better life choices on my part. 

She certainly likes running
