I’ve been thinking for awhile that I’m fat and out of shape. Ok, that’s not really a thinking thing as much as a truth thing. My job is a sit at a desk all day and never move kind of job, so in my time there I’ve gained weight and continued to get more and more out of shape.
I’ve tried a few things here and there. I had a gym membership where I frequently did the elliptical and swam laps. I’ve rocked the NFL Training Camp for Wii. But usually I do things for awhile and then stop and end up out of breath again.
A few times I’ve tried running. The truth is, I don’t hate it. But I have knee issues and that tends to catch up with me But the other day I was out for a walk and discovered that the park by where I live has a rubberized surface on it’s running trail, so I figured I’d give it a shot. My friend Andy had told me about a plan that in 9 weeks takes you from doing no running at all to being ready for a 5k. Now I don’t know if I can really pull that off in 9 weeks, but I downloaded the app, joined RunKeeper, and off I went.
Now I hurt. But I’m proud of myself for getting one day down… let’s see if I can get all 9 weeks…
