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!!
