Running without being chased

I'm gonna start the Couch-to-5k thing tomorrow. I guess it's a good way to deal with mid-life crises, no?

you should join the Geek to 5k group! It's a bunch of people who are going to CONvergence. We're going to run a 5k the Saturday before CVG and then meet up at CVG. :)

That's perfect. I'll finish week 9 just before CVG. :D

Aw, that's a drive up the week before? :P We'll see. That Friday'd be my Week 9 start.

resistance is futile, lulz
Yes join us! I can't actually do the 5k the weekend before either. But i am still gonna do the training, and get a t-shirt, and meet up at con.

What's this "couch to 5k" thing you speak of?

How can you be having a mid life crisis - that means you'd only be living to 24?!?!?!

Wha...? 24? Pfth. 'sides, it's just a saying. I'm gonna try to live long enough to be immortal; best get started on it.

I am SO EXCITED that you're doing the g25k thing!

I'm really enjoying it - and I'm actually on week 2. I usually give up after, oh, three days. So good things are happening, one of them being that MANDYDAX is joining up!

I just got back and recovered enough to type. Made it half-way and had to walk back. I thought I was going to die, or at least be sick. :( I didn't stop moving, though. I guess I need the exercise more than I thought.

At boot camp (3 months) I went from can-barely-make-it-one-mile to 3-miles-in-24-minutes.

I'm hoping to get to the point where I can go for, say, 24 minutes without stopping. :)

Of course half the fun of running is being chased ;)

Unless it is by an angry mob...
That isn't quite as fun.

I wish you good luck on your goal and that you have fun with it.
