Around 7:45 I decided I am going to powerwalk this morning outside and with the babies that way we all get cardio and enjoy the beautiful weather( it REALLY is motivating) we all got dressed, me in my yoga pants sports bra and suffolk sweatshirt and them in their harnesses and started our 30 minute excursion. Normally we just walk the entire time but I decided why not walk on the grassy spots and jog through the parking lots? And that we did for little bursts of jogging... they loved it and i loved it.
After 30 min I decided to drop them off, drink some water and push myself to FINALLY start the COUCH TO 5K program... I have been putting this off with endless excuses for about a month, and i decided there is no time like the present, grabbed my ipod touch(which has the couch to 5k app) and left.
When I started it was really easy I was like 60 seconds jogging is nothing, i didn't get tired until halfway through... I was about to quit because I didn't want to walk/jog anymore because it was getting harder... then the app said "halfway point," i knew i couldn't quit now I made it halfway through and it was only my first day, I quit things too easily all the time and this is something I want to really do so why short myself?
...I pushed through, i felt the breeze on my face, the fresh air in my lungs and pavement beneath my sneakers. I was running and I was going to complete my first day. It was such a great feeling. After I was done I was on a high, my boyfriend who FOR ONCE woke up early couldn't believe how much I accomplished before 9 am. He even went to workout himself because I MOTIVATED HIM!
Heres a pic of me post CTO5K:
