OMG...what have I gotten myself into?
I just signed myself up for the Saint Louis Graffiti Run....It is being held on April 13th in Madison IL....My husband is going to run with me....I hate his natural athleticism but I am SOOO glad to have him.
I mean it isn't a huge deal it is just a 5K...but that is really far for a fat girl who doesn't run.
I have ALWAYS wanted to do one.
I got an e-mail saying that if I signed up in the next four weeks I could get registration for $35 instead of the normal $50. I even go an awesome pair of hip sunglasses...you know the kind they wore in the 80's with the colored arms...it is going to rock!
To prepare for this I have a plan/schedule
Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday = Running (C25K)
Monday,Wednesday,Friday = Curves workout
Saturday = Rest (I have to work and grocery shop and get my kids to my dad...CRAZY DAY!)
Today was Day 1....I ran/walked 2 miles in 30 minutes. That is pretty good since when I had to stop running back in August I could only make it about 1.8 miles in 30....Tomorrow morning at 5:30am I will be found at the Curves gym by my house to get my workout in before I go to work....Let it begin!!!!
I am not sure if you noticed but I didn't log a weigh in this week...that is because I have decided that I am not going to weigh in during my time of the month. In the heat of the moment with the rush of hormones running though my crazy women body I cannot comprehend that it is water weight. I get so discouraged and that isn't good. So....I am not gunna do it....lol!
I will keep you all posted!
