A big mistake...or not?

***This is actually on my weight loss blog also. Just wanted to share it here also***

There is a program down here called " Couch Potato...to 5k". It is a beginners running class. My friend asked me if I would be willing to do it with her. Well...since I found that jogging stroller, I told her sure. The coach said she makes it stroller friendly so that everyone can have a chance to participate.

So today was the first day. I was late ( long story) and so ended up kind of having to jog to catch up with the rest of the class. What we did today was run for 60 seconds, walk for 90. And do that for 20 minutes. I was DYING! Please let me mention that it is like a 1000 degrees here, so it was sooo hot out there. Add in pushing a 35 lb.child in a stroller and well....I was literally shaking by the time I got done. My legs were sore, my arms were shaking. It was crazy. Now I have exercised sporadically for a while now. 3 times just last week...but I was not prepared for that.

I honestly felt like a big idiot out there. Like am I just wasting the coach's time? I didn't come in last ( it is not a competion)but I still felt exaughsted.

HOWEVER...I worked hard. I did something that was out of my comfort zone, and did the best I could. I got out and got fresh air, spent time with friends and worked my body. hard. It feels kind of good. After I took some tylenol of course. :)

So we will see how it goes on Wednesday!
