So many of you know I’ve started a Couch to 5 app.
(Because I pretty much haven’t stopped whining about it since)
Why? Running is terrible. TERRIBLE.
I started the app to A. further along my slow progress to a healthier jimi and B. because the wifebot would like to do the Color run at some point. I know that if I started running and agreed to do it she’d be 100x more likely to do it. Then we decided we’d be named team Darkest Timeline and would have drawn on evil moustaches.
(That settled it)
Today I start week 4. I may or may not be wasting time by writing this. That’s right now but we’re going to jump in our DeLorean for some funny times.
You see I was never one to like running all that much. I mean the bus I needed to catch could be nearby and I’d be like “Oh I’ll catch the next one.”Things like that are probably why I have so much weight to lose. I tried to do this app about 2 years ago and stopped pretty quickly. The lovely wife (who would run before) could do it but I was whiny. The second time around I believe benefitted from DDPYOGA and 30 pounds of weight loss.
Day one was mostly terrible, but gave me hope. I completed it and didn’t stop. Day 2 was chillier and so I wore sweat pants for it. These pants were pre weight loss and so a bit bigger. Halfway through the session my pants needed to be tightened again. I pulled the string and my 24 inch pythons were too much for it. The string broke. The old jimi would have gone home to ch ange and never actually go back out. To battle this I just held up my pants as I completed the run.
It got several looks, but I finished it.
I might have cursed a bunch.
But I finished.
And now I gotta go do day 1 of week 4.
