2013 & my first run

I did it....I planned on a morning run, but settled for one after the boys were in bed. I'm not sure the actual temperature (I forgot to look) but it felt awfully cold to be out last night.

I started the Couch 25k. I did a 5 minute warm up (did not get warm), then 1.5 minutes of walk & 1 minute of running & ended with 5 minute cool down. I think that since it was cold, I moved faster than I thought I would on my first run. The stats showed that for my 1 minute runs I averaged 13 minutes per mile....not bad for someone completely out of shape.

I really didn't have my peaceful time....my clothes weren't fitting right (gained too much weight) & I just wanted to finish to get out of the cold (I watched the clock the entire 30 minutes).

I've got to figure out what I can wear the doesn't fit too tightly & I'm not pulling down the whole time....& enough layers to keep me warm for 30 minutes....see I was cold, but I had sweat dripping down my back....ugh...

These 30 minute work outs are going to be very do-able as soon as I can figure the proper layering!! Next to add in cross training. I planned on getting up this morning, but with not being able to sleep after the run & Liam screaming for me at 3 AM, it did not happen. Maybe I'll pull out a workout tape later today...I really want to try to do something every day....run, cross train, stretch...something...

Later today, I'm going to work on goal setting & I plan on posting them here so that I can be held accountable!! I need all the help and encouragement possible!!
