ee-ah-oooh

my thighs!! I can walk ok, but going up or down stairs or simply bending my knees to sit down and they creak and groan!

Oh well, hopefully they will limber up...you see, I have taken on a new challenge - C25K for short, which stands for Couch to 5K, which is a beginners running programe that aims to get lazy gals (and guys!) like me running 5k (3 miles) in two months.

Now, whether 30 mins of jogging actually amounts to 5k I don't know; and whether I will actually get to that point I really don't know! About the only thing that I do know is that my thighs hurt today and today is only the first day of the first week of the whole thing! Erk - lets hope it gets better.

The main reason that I am blogging about this is that I am hoping that this will give me incentive as otherwise you will all think that I am a lazy so-and-so and just lack the stamina to do something like this. Besides which, it will actually give me something to talk about as I appear to have lost inspiration at the moment.

Oh you poor thing! Now you are getting older will you legs/knees take the strain??

Seriously though, I do think you are very brave to start running, hope you make the 5k!

Hi, I came across your blog from Kerryn's, hope you don't mind?? I have started the C25K as well and am only in the first week too. I'll keep an eye on your progress ;)
