Training Has Started

So, I finally decided to get serious about this running thing. Before I would sporadically go out for runs, but I found myself a running partner and now I go more regularly because I have someone else counting on me. We have been running for about three weeks now and I must admit I love how it feels after a run.

My running partner, I will call her C, hasn't run in FOREVER so we have to go slow. I found a great run/walk program and convinced her to do a 5K with me. C isn't adjust to well, she is sore alot, but I am proud of her because she keeps on plugging away. Next week she is on vacation so I am crossing my fingers that she will go out for her runs. I convinced my husband to go on my runs with me next week. We will be out for our first run tomorrow. I hope he can run five minutes straight.

Tomorrow is run 5 minutes, walk 2.5 minutes, times 4. Next week is run 7 minutes, walk 3 times 3. We will see how it goes.
