Run Away

I've been saying I'd start the Couch-to-5K Plan for months. First, the excuse was that we were about to move, and I didn't know what kind of set-up I'd have, and besides, I'd be occupied. Then it was that we were just in here, and there were a million things to do. Then Di got laid off, and we were kinda out of it. Then it was just laziness.

Screw it. I've officially started.

Not bad, really. Obviously, the start is pretty damn mild, but still, for as sedentary a life as I have, it was exertion. Felt good, though, in the end. I did screw up a little: the first week is alternating 60 jogging with 90 seconds of walking, and I did it the other way around. Not a BAD screw up, though. Anyway, handling it means the opposite is even easier. I'll still have yard work to add in on this, and some low-impact walking with Di form time to time, but here's hoping this gets me back on the road to some semblance of fitness.
