Day 1 Conservative Couch to 5k Training Notes

  • It was raining, so I went to the rec center. I am grateful that there’s a pretty awesome rec center two minutes from my house.
  • I like how quiet the rec center is at 8:30 am on a Tuesday. Lots of senior citizens walking, cycling, and drinking free coffee together. I found the scent of hazelnut wafting up from the coffee machine very comforting.
  • My phone does not have a headphone jack, which I didn’t realize until I was ready to start walking . (Actually it does, but it was hidden by my armband and early-morning stupor.) “Luckily” there is music provided by the overhead speakers.
  • Anyway. Walked for 5, jogged (sort of) for 5, walked for 5, stretched, walked with intention for 10, walked slow for 5. Nice way to start the day.
  • Also, I love these shoes.
