The Crazy Train
I have got a case of crazy. I think something has snapped. The one thing I swore I hate to do, I am doing. JOGGING. I don't know what has over come me to start jogging, but I am on my way. I found this program called The Couch To 5K. It is not scary, I get to walk to start out, and I find myself enjoying it. Who would have thought?
I find myself thinking that maybe I can do this. Is it possible? Can I actually run a 5K? I like getting up and getting outside. I like that when I am out (gulp) exercising the world is quiet and peaceful. When I get back home, I am wide awake and ready to greet my kiddos and get the show on the road. And at night I don't feel so bad while I sit and knit or sew. I feel.........healthy.
There are no plans for marathons or running for more than 3-4 times a week. Just a way to stay fit and take care of this aging body. I want to enjoy foods and drinks and life and not diet my life away. So maybe, just maybe, this will help me do that.
