I started using the treadmill again yesterday. I must say that I feel a lot better when I get on it than when I don't. It excites me to think that I am getting healthier and am able to run longer and farther as time goes on. I have heard a lot about the couch to 5k program that gives you a schedule of what days to walk/jog and for how long. By the end of week 10 you should be able to jog an entire 5k race. I would love to be able to run a 5k race again. It's hard to believe that I ran that every day in high school during cross country season, but I will get to that point again. I am loosely using this program as a reference, but am trying to push myself harder than what is in the schedule. It's something that I know I can do because I have done it before and getting to that point again will be a huge accomplishment. Today when I was running I learned that if I have just the right music playing it really makes me want to keep going. Tonight's song was Dead and Gone by the Black Keys. The beat was great for my pace.
I will leave you with a quote:
