I joined a beginners running club a couple of weeks ago. I’ve intermittently run for the past couple of years, but I wanted to go back to basics and learn to run with a group. And this winter was a wasteland of personal fitness, so I needed to start at the very beginning with a “Couch to 5K” program.
At the duck pond in town on Wednesdays and Saturday mornings, Linda, the trainer, blows whistles for us to run and then walk. We’ve built up to a three minute run and a one minute walk for thirty minutes. It’s unbelievably awesome. I mean it’s not like I’m Jack Dorsey or anything, with a wackadoo fasting schedule and all that, but I do like getting muscle-y.
I think that I’ve earned a new running outfit, so after I tidy up a few loose ends with work, I’m going to the mall to get a new running outfit. And maybe a new dress. And maybe a manicure. Retail therapy is always good.
What’s your exercise regimen these days?
