Running away from the fatman.

Been overweight my whole life, really. Time to change that. On September 16th, 2013 I started the couch to 5K regiment over after not running for quite a long time.

I had forgotten how much the first days of this hurt.

Today, I am recovering from that first outing, sore as I can be, but looking forward to tomorrow morning to try and work out some of that pain. It is truly amazing that I was up to running thirty minutes straight a short time ago, but am now having trouble with the one minute intervals in the first day’s program.

Also, I need to mention that I am not overly happy with the C25K app I was using (Total C25K) worked well enough with two exceptions:

  1. The alerts were quiet, and if I were breathing heavily, or if the music was especially loud, the girls voice saying “Run” or “Walk” just seemed too little notice – perhaps a “Walk in 3….2….1″ type notification would work better?
  2. Facebook didn’t get the uploading of my time/distance information -I think that I will start logging it here anyway, but I would like to have had the ability to do it automatically.
