I’ve just completed my fourth week on Couch to 5k, though I’m still doing the first week suggestions. Nothing wrong with that. And I actually can feel a difference, see small differences, every time I run. So there is improvement.
In case I forgot to mention it last time, I don’t really want to run in a 5k race. Maybe that’ll change, but my only goal is to be able to run that much without stopping, whether it’s 5 kilometers or 5 miles. When in my life have I ever been able to run for 30 minutes, or to run for that distance? That’s right, never.
And though I spend most of my time, while running, either looking at the ground or at my watch, I do occasionally notice the gorgeous sky. But I won’t say anything sappy like “sunsets are so inspiring”. Because more than likely, I’m off in la-la land, listening to Kelly Clarkson, and waiting for the next 30 seconds to tick on by. Come on, would you have believed me, if I’d said otherwise?
