Subject:So this running thing...
Time:10:08 pm
This running thing kinda freaks me the fuck out. I just finished W2D2, and I find that I'm almost looking forward to running. What. The. Fuck?

So W2D2 was not appreciably easier than W2D1. The first couple of runs were easy, but the last couple were really tough. Based on that, I expect I'm probably going to have to hold myself back and do some week 2 summer school before I move on to week 3. I'm OK with that. I'm actually surprised I've gotten this far this quickly and remained in one piece. There was almost no dizziness this time.

BTW, I'm posting this largely so that I have a record of it, but also so that y'all can keep me honest-- if I don't post anything about running for a while, feel free to chime in and ask me what's up with that. You are my collective conscience. I certainly don't mind advice and applause, but don't feel obligated to reply just because I finished another run.

I am SOOO not a runner, but as I sit here still recovering from the total knee replacement I envision you running when I read about your outings.

It makes me just a tad envious. In a good and empowering way.

Running will sneak up on you. Two years ago (almost to the day) I started C25k and on W1D1, I called a running buddy up for tips. He challenged me to join him on the bridge run 10k the following April. It seemed a good goal, so I agreed and registered for the race. As you know, I did trained well (but not hard) and completed the race as planned. As soon as the race was over, I told my buddy I was done with running.

A week later, I found myself running again for no apparent reason than it just felt good.

"if I don't post anything about running for a while, feel free to chime in and ask me what's up with that."

I'm on it.

Ron gives sage advice: find an early spring 5K and sign up now, then publicly vow to run it no matter what.

I'm all about shame and humiliation. Tremendous motivator.

I don't run (bad knees I still need to sort out, among other things), but I found this to be true the more I walked. I've noticed I get seriously antsy throughout my whole body if I don't have at least a couple of serious (for me) walks a week now.
