Ready, Set, GO!

Sam and I are currently in exercise mode, which accounts for the lack of posts lately. We signed up for a 5K benefiting autism research and general awareness through my school, which means my co-workers are also participating, which means I needed to get in shape. So, we started a "Couch to 5K" program a couple weeks ago where you alternate running and walking by various increments each day. Well, the program is 10 weeks long and the 5K is next weekend....see the problem??? We upped our training to every day (the program gives a break every other day) and in addition to running, we have started biking more. This past weekend we rode almost 12 miles in 1 hour 7 minutes with temperatures in the 80's! Go figure our luck that the weather turns exceedingly hot right when we want to be outside exercising in cool weather. We've tried to stay right on track with the running....but a slight mishap last night has put Sam out of commission for a couple days. We were running around a circular garden in his neighborhood on a sidewalk, when Sam decided to go "off road" and promptly jammed his foot into a sprinkler head in the grass. Poor guy tumbled down face first and got a severely stubbed toe :( Thankfully after icing it last night and again today, he said it is feeling better and he'll be back to training this weekend.

So, that's a little update on my life right now. Working by day and training by night! Will I be ready to run the entire 5K?? Absolutely!! (although realistically I'll be walking and running, but hey, I gotta keep motivated!)
