What I learned from my first C25k workout…


Here are some things I learned Saturday when I started my Couch to 5K running plan:


  • The sports bra is your friend.  I didn’t have my really good sports bra on, just some cheap shelf bra tank top thingie that I grabbed out of the drawer. OH MY!!  I had no idea the girls could get that much vertical range in the bounce.  From now on, I will make sure the girls are properly supported.  And along those same lines…
  • My gluteus maximus lives up to its name.  I didn’t know that my derriere could move independently from the rest of my body.  The jiggle factor had to have been read on the seismic scale.  I think my butt and my boobs were in a contest to see who could bounce the highest.  ( I think the girls won)
  • Water is a precious commodity.  I was halfway through my run (walk) when I realized I had forgotten my water.   I was so thirsty but I didn’t want to stop so I just had to deal with it.
  • Running is good for the digestive system.  Let’s just leave it at that.

  I felt really good when I finished and will probably do day 2 this afternoon.  I will definitely wear my good sports bra and have a giant bottle of water with me this time though.  Have any tips to offer?  I’d love to hear them!!

  1. I hear ya on the bra thing. I wear two sports bras when I run. If you are a D or bigger (not sure if it applies to C or smaller, since I’m a D and used to be a DD and can only speak for the Big Girls), then you might try 2 bras for running. It makes a big difference.

    I agree with all your other points, too. Hope you have a great day 2!
