Week Three Day One

Keeping right along with my "Couch to 5K" training, I have to tell you that today I finished well! I started with some stretches, then Sheila the wonder dog and I set out to start a new training week. We walked briskly for 5 minutes, then jogged for 90 seconds, walked for 90 seconds, ran for 3 minutes, walked for 3 minutes and then repeated that one more time. I reduced my time by 8 minutes and I'm totally excited. I've been walking 2 miles off and on for several years and generally do it in a little over 30 minutes, but today I finished that same distance in 22 minutes. Whoo hoo!!!!!
I will admit that I was wringing wet when I got home, but I finished well!
On a humorous note, the hubby of my best friend called me last night to see if I was watching the women running the marathon in the Olympics. He and my friend were curious if I would wear the same running attire that those ladies do and the answer is no, no, no!!! The world just isn't ready for that yet.
