Y’all! I promise I am not going to post about every run I do (mostly ’cause there probably won’t be that many) but let me tell you – I’ve been hoodwinked! Bamboozled! Led astray! Run amuck!
Remember I signed up for C25K with the Y, yes? Okay. Last night was our first outing. In preparation I downloaded a C25K app so I could see what I was in for. The app outlined a 30 minute workout. 5 minutes of warm up, 20 minutes of run/walk, and 5 minutes of cool down.
Um, yeah. Our group – there are 6 of us – met up at 6 to do the dang thang. We’re led by some perky chick who could give the Kenyans a run for their money – she runs those crazy long races. She’s also 7 weeks pregnant. Heifer. Anyway, where was I?
Oh yes. We meet up and start with a 5 minute warm up walk. I’m feeling this. We then run. For 2 minutes! Ma’am. I just got off the couch. Shouldn’t we ease into this?!?!? What happened to the nice 90 second jog? And we did all three miles! I thought we’d start off with a nice 1 mile routine or something. Nope. We jogged/walked for an entire 3 miles. Took us 42 minutes. I wanted to cry. My thighs are waging their own protest by refusing to function in the manner to which I have become accustomed. By the time I regain feeling in my thighs it’ll be Thursday. And time to run again. Jesus, be some working quadriceps muscles.
