I did it. I did the first day of the Couch 2 5K and I survived. I did the workout as designed with music in my ears on my treadmill and it felt great. Even though I am terribly out of shape, I have five baby belly, I am exhausted 99% of the time and my stress levels are through the roof, I still forced myself to do it and I am glad. It felt great. I feel great and I am looking forward to doing it again Saturday! I am hoping that this will help with my stress since we were just dealt a new card with Finn on Wednesday so my levels were topped off a bit. It will be a hard few weeks, but we will get through like we always do.
I do have to give some credit to my kiddos for letting me escape for 30 minutes to my room to get in my workout. Teagan was tucked in bed and the three biggies were kind enough to watch Finny downstairs for me so I could have the time I needed. I am positive that the ice cream I promised them had nothing to do with it :)
