Yesterday I ventured outside for a run. My first run in 6 months! *gulp* I have to admit I was nervous.  I wasn’t sure how to start back up again…honestly, I’m not even sure why I want to.  BUT, I do.

There is all sorts of info on how to start running online.  For instance, the couch to 5k program (c25k). What I found was there isn’t a lot of info on how to start running after a little big hiatus that you remained active doing other things. (Holy crap that is a poor sentence!) Just not running things.  There is no bike to 5k program.

I have been active cross-country skiing, cross-fitting, and riding the trainer all winter. If I’m being totally honest, I haven’t done those things enough  either. Ugh! I digress.

Running is different from those activities.  Running is NOT forgiving of a break.  You can’t just jump right into a 5 mile run.  Well you can, but you wouldn’t walk right for a while.  You could even get injured, and no one wants that.

So, what’s a girl to do?!  Wing it! I decided on a 2.5 mile walk/run.  Guess what?  I didn’t die  🙂

Join me as I try to spin it all; work, family, exercise, healthy living, and healthy eating. Perhaps we can learn together. Hilarity is certain to be involved.

    Running is NOT forgiving! My word, it’s so hard to get back in the swing of things, but WOW, does it feel good when you don’t die! 😉
