Remember how I used to talk endlessly about banishing the baby belly? Don’t worry if you don’t, because it was never actually banished (and therefore, I’m not going to link you to the posts).
However, it did diminish in size—which is an accomplishment in and of itself, since I’ve spent most of the last four months feeling as if an alien was slowly eating its way through my insides (feel free to golf clap). But now? Now it’s time to finish what I started.
That’s why I did day one of the Couch to 5K program today…for the third time. But you know what they say about third times and charms and stuff. I’m hoping it’s true.
I even took Tori with me in the jogging stroller I bought way back in September.
And you know what? That thing is heavy. Especially when you’re jogging uphill, holding your surprisingly large pants up with one hand. By the halfway point, I was considering parking her under a tree and coming back for her after I finished my run.
I didn’t, of course. But I did do the whole workout. Day one of week one is complete. Hopefully, nine weeks from now, I’ll be gloating that I just finished a 5K without breaking a sweat…jogging stroller or no jogging stroller.
Anybody want to take bets on that?
