Skipping is for Pussies

I got tonight's title from what I said before starting Week 5 of C25K. I could have skipped tonight's run - I have IPO and lure coursing tomorrow, and I ate dinner far too early this evening for my stomach to be completely settled.

BUT... skipping is for pussies.

I'm glad I didn't skip. Week 5 looks scary, but I found the first day to be a breeze. Perhaps it helps that it was so cold out, because I couldn't feel my legs by the time my warm-up was done.

I think this is actually getting easier.

So. Moving on. If any of my dear readers live in/near/around Cedar Rapids IA, I highly suggest signing your butts up for Run for the Heart. This is a 5k run/walk in honor of Dr. McMann, one of my former high school teachers who needs a heart transplant. It's on Sunday, May 20th - less than a month away, kiddies! I will most likely be walking instead of running, since I do not currently have running gear that isn't hideous. Also, I'll be wanting to wear my VFFs and I'll have a dog with me. (The dog will be black and pointy, not multicolored and fluffy. Just in case you were wondering.)

Ohhhhh let's see, what else shall I update you all on? Oh! I got the two pairs of Vibram FiveFingers I ordered! They are beyond awesome, partially because they're actually the right size for my feet. If you have longer feet than me, I will gladly send you my pair of KSOs (size 41) because I no longer need them. I plan on replacing them as soon as I can decide on a color. I want my next pair to be bright. Also, my husband says he'll try them if I buy him a pair. I'm not sure if it's worth a $110 risk, and that's one less pair I can have for myself!

I will try to get photos tomorrow. We have a very busy day - IPO, coursing, and hopefully another visit to my favorite restaurant in the world... ZOMBIE BURGER.

  1. AHHH. I need to try Zombie Burger.

    I set out to compliment your running progress and you know, got distracted by a cheeseburger.

    I almost went today but long story short, I didn't. Ballz.
