BUT. As of today I am back on track. I was planning on going to the gym when Paul gets home from work but it's nice enough outside that I'll probably just go for a run/walk.
Speaking of running, it was this time last year that I was training for my first 5K. I ran the thing in early June and have since never run more than a mile and a half and since the fall I don't think I've run more than 5 or 6 minutes at a time without stopping to walk. I want to do another 5K in November (our community has an annual Turkey Trot--it's nice and close and cheaper than some of the others) but I will totally need to build back up to being able to run a whole 3.1 miles. I keep wanting to restart the couch-to-5K program but darn it, I want to lose some weight first. I hate running at this weight. It feels so gross. I mean, there are lots of people way heavier than me who run just fine, but I just think it would be so much easier and more comfortable if I could lose some weight (one might think that running could be a good way to facilitate desired weight loss but one must also reduce one's caloric intake on more than just a few sporadic days here and there). Anyway, at some point between now and early September I am going to start C25K again regardless of weight because I really do want to run that 5K in November.
