Because I like the pain, OK

Please think of one person you know who procrastinates excessively. Like, the one person you know who does this more than anyone else you have ever met. Because I need you to understand that I am like 43 times worse than that person.

Remember that 5K I signed up for last month? If I'd begun training immediately, that would have given me two months to train for it, which would have been a perfect match with the "Couch to 5K Running Plan" that I found online.

But did I begin training immediately? Of course not. Have I trained at all? Negative.

Today, B and I bought running shoes. Here is a breakdown of the training situation.

There are 41 days to train for the 5K.
There are 27 workouts in the Couch to 5K Running Plan.
I am taking 1 week of vacation in April (during which I will continue to run).
I will attend yoga 10 times before the 5K, on days when I am not running.
This means I need to run 5 times per week for the next three weeks, and 4 times per week for the following three weeks.

This should be interesting.

  1. Lol that sounds like something I would do! Be careful training..if you run one day and wake up the next day sore or with any type of pain, take it easy or take a day off. It's very easy to run too much too fast and kill your body. 3x per week till the 5k should be enough training to get through the race in halfway-decent shape.
