I've been really good with my jogging for the past couple of months. I've worked up to the Couch to 5k week 6. Which I've realized varies between a couple of programs. My current run is a 5 minute walk, 8 minute run, 5 minute walk, 8 minute run, 5 minute walk. I've been doing some weeks over, or for an extra day or two, which is why I'm only at 6.
It doesn't sound like much. 8 minutes at a time. But. Taking into account that the last time I ran for more than about 30 seconds was when I was in junior high (more than 10 years ago), and when I did it, I ended up in the hospital for a week with asthma and bronchitis... this is a major thing for me! I think the coolest thing for me is also one of the dumbest... I had a redbox movie and about two minutes to return it. The 7-11 is just around the block, so I just took off running. And I made it! And I wasn't winded at all! Little victories people. Little victories.
I do intend to run a 5k at some point. This fall most likely. I'm actually looking forward to it.
Everything except the salmon came from a Bountiful Basket...
I've got pan-fried salmon with broccoli and miso-roasted butternut squash. The other layer has grape tomatoes, salted cabbage, strawberries, and nectarine slices.
I actually made two of these... but this was the cuter of the two.
