>5/24/10 …. and so it begins
>My mom has been going to a No Boundaries Couch to 5k through Fleet Feet for about 6 weeks.
They started one at 61st and Yale, that meets at the Fleet Feet store. I figured since I work at 61st and Yale … I should go for it!!
So – day one –
We did two 13 minute miles — alternating between running for 1 minute and walking for 3, 9 times
I am proud of myself. I was able to run 8 of the 9 times!!
- I was wearing the wrong shoes – these shoes are made for toning backsides while walking … not really running
- My shoes might have been too tight, my left foot was numb most of the time
- Mom tells me (she learned through her classes) that you have to have the right sock …. and I don’t think I did – I almost rubbed blisters on my heels
- I had a regular t-shirt on …. I wish I had a shirt with wicking capabilities!!!
Soooo ….. if any of you are just wondering what you could give me to help me in my new running task ……. I could use new shoes, socks, and a shirt ….. or a gift card for Fleet Feet where I could get those things! HAHAHA Just kidding! Thanks for reading! Post any comments you have!!
