Strange things are happening!

I've been very intense about going to the gym lately. As part of this recent kick, I decided to give the Couch to 5k plan another shot. I have always HATED running. Absolutely despised it.

At this point, though, I'm on week 2 and actually find myself enjoying it. I'm taking it slowly, and I'm very much tied to the treadmill to keep my pace steady, and the podcast to tell me when to switch from running to walking, but during those 90 second interval runs, I actually find myself smiling. Tonight I didn't even look down at the timer once during the runs. I could have kept going when the blessed voice told me to slow down and walk. I'm excited to keep going on this program.

Eventually, I aspire to be off the treadmill and running around BYU campus. Like one of those adorable coeds with my ipod, and cute little hotpants with BYU plastered across the bum, and of course the matching tank top. Or maybe just a sports bra. Yeah, just a sports bra is definitely more runner-friendly.

Haha! I always wanted to be one of the cute runners too but apparently I wasn't cool enough to be in that club :-) hehe! Hey, I just switched my blog to private and I need your email address... can you send it to me?

YEAH!! Woohoo. It's nice when exercise finally gets to be an enjoyable thing to do, eh?

No BYU plastered on your bum, though, not ever.

Way to go, that's awesome! That's a great thing cause I really don't know anyone that actually find themselves enjoying it. Nice job!

I have been having such a hard time getting on the elliptical lately! And I will never be a runner.

Keep going girl!! I have a 5K coming up at the end of April, then another one at the end of May. It's my inspiration to not be the fat girl people talk about seeing when they were on vacation ;o)
