Couch Potato Day 2

Day 2 of my Couch Potato to 5K program was much better than day 1. Ok, maybe I just had different issues today. I'll let you decide.


I got up late today (DD1 was up 2x's last night - very unusual for her). I was able to get myself out the door with no hassles in about 15 minutes today. Turn on the timer, and here I go. I start the 5 minute warm up walk... towards the end of the 5 minutes, I realize that it is extremely hot & muggy (81 degrees by 6:55 am!) I am starting to sweat just from the heat. The next thing I notice is a very pungent odor - oh my goodness, it's garbage day on my street - it just stinks - ugh! Think positive - it's motivation to move faster, right? Okay, so now I'm at the first 60 seconds of jogging - make sure I breath that lovely smelling air - and now I notice that the sports bra I am wearing today is not really holding up - so to speak - mental note to self, either wash one from Monday often, or stop at Target to get another.


Okay, I'm dealing with the bra issue, and the stench - turn the corner and now I am sweating profusely, and I am now following a garbage truck, and have no options to change my path - pick up the pace girl - get past the truck - for fear alone that something disgusting may fly off of the truck and smack me straight in the face.


I made it through day 2 and after a cool shower, I feel great - energized and ready to tackle my day. Thanks everyone for the encouragement, and let me know if you are trying the program too!


Okay, now for my list:

You made me smile about your Couch 2 day - I would've been thinking the exact same thing. GOOD for you for getting to day 2. I looked up the podcast doo-dahs and they are great. IF I do this program (and I'm really considering it) then I will download the podcasts to my mp3 player I think so I don't have to sowrry about timing and someone can just TELL me when to walk/jog/collapse, etc.
Thanks for the list too. (((hugs)))

You had me roaring about the garbage truck... I work at a LANDFILL!!! I smell that 9 hours a day (in the 90 degree heat). Smells like money to me! The sweet stench of $26 per ton! hahahaha! Thanks for the list. I know how hard it is to do. It's always nice to pop in and find that you did all the dirty work. You rock! Truly...
