In an effort to rid myself of the extra pounds put on this winter, hibernating with a plenty of comfort food, I am committed to working them off by training for a 5k run taking place on June 5th. Yes, it’s the morning of my oldest’s high school graduation ceremony, but if I train properly, I won’t even break a sweat. Right?
My first foray into this new regime was a 2 mile walk. I brought my 12 year old with me. We slogged through unshoveled sidewalks, avoiding puddles and little green goose “deposits”. He didn’t see much sense in just walking. Where’s the fun in that? But it was a great way for us to catch up and share some laughs, just the two of us. Before we new it, we were home. It was cold, but it felt good. And, although it was just about dinner time, it was still light out. Another plus.
Today the forecast is calling for a couple inches of lake effect snow. This might be a little tougher than I thought.
I ought to keep my pool pass laced into my shoes for motivation.
If you have any other ideas, I’m all ears!
