From Couch to 5k

Whoooo Hoooooo!!!! My first workout is done!!! I'm gonna need a bambulance in the morning for real!!!

I need a few basic essentials to get this running thing going like proper workout gear. I also need a watch with a timer cause I know I lost track of what the hell I was doing. LOL!!!

My workout for the first week is a brisk five minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes three times a week.

Now ok I'm already confused. Am I supposed to do the 60 seconds of jogging/90 seconds of walking for 20 minutes plus the 5 minutes of brisk walking in the beginning for a total of 25 minutes? And please tell me what am I supposed to do for a cool down? Just stretch for 5 minutes or what? Back to the drawing board. Oh and dummy me didn't do any stretching beforehand, just the brisk warmup walk. Wrong, wrong, wrong. I was soooo excited to get started that I totally forgot to stretch!!! Yowsa!!!!!!!!

My body was like WTF are you doing? My hips and thighs were burning something fierce and I was like yeah baby kiss all that flab goodbye. It's a new day!!!! Ooooh I feel good!!!!

Yay me!!!
