MEEEE!!!!! I knew that it was now or never, so despite another rough night with Vivian (apparently we're on round 2 of the family spring cold now), I got up this morning, laced up my new running shoes and went out. I need to work on figuring out a good route still. Since I live in the city there are lots of crosswalks and signals to be negotiated. Twice I hit the "run now" message on my iPod as I waited for the light to change.
And I need to get up earlier to run. Maybe when I'm in better shape I wont mind if people actually see me running, but I am not at that point yet :)
I still hate exercise and feel nothing but relief when I'm done, but it is mentally nice to be doing something to take care of myself for once. Hopefully I can keep it up! I'm sadly out of shape since my exercise over the last year has been in short bursts and then long pauses- and the year before that I was not allowed to exercise for most of the year before while I was pregnant with Vivian. And boy can I tell that I'm out of shape. I like the slow start of this C25K program though. Hopefully it'll keep me from getting overwhelmed.
Thanks to all of you for your encouragement!
