In a moment that can only be described as insanity, I jumped on board with a friend who wants to do a 5K mud run.
In case you don't know me personally, let me make it clear: I don't run. I work out on occasion but I am far from athletic. One time I was asked if I wanted to play pool at a bar. My response, without hesitation was, "I'm not sporty." That is just one example of my level of non-sportiness.
Then I went and signed up to not only run but to run a 5K that includes crawling through mud, climbing walls, and who knows what else.
This particular mud run is female only and non-competitive but, oh my goodness, I still need to train.
I don't like doing things half-assed. I needed to figure out how to give this my best effort. I consulted with Google. Enter Couch to 5K
. I downloaded their app on my iPhone and am ready to go.
At least I think I'm ready.
I will begin the program with my first workout tomorrow after work. Good thoughts are welcome and probably very much needed. I will report back on my progress.
