Running...day 1

Happy Tuesday loves!

I want to first off tell you that I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON!!

Yesterday I decided that I have my running shoes so I need to stop with the excuses and just get up and get outside and run/walk. Well i woke up at 9 Monday (that's EARLY for me) and noticed it was rainy and crappy out. So yesterday did not work out since I was gone rest of the day and didn't get home until 10 pm. So i made a target run yesterday afternoon and got a new sports bra, couple new workout capris and awesome socks. I was fully READY TO GO! 
So i love Target, haven't been in awhile and this one which is a SUPER target is like just miles from my soon to be new house! YAY

Two new capris..sports bra..socks! WAHOOO

I checked weather for this morning, it said rain will start at 7am :( boooo. So i set my alarm for 8am, took another step to get up an hour earlier from yesterday. I got up seen the SUN SHINING and got my workout clothes on grabbed my phone & headphones and used the C25K app today. It started off with a 5 minutes walk then i did 8 sets of jogging/running for 60 seconds then walk for 90 seconds & then a 5 minute cool down! 

I am so extremely proud of myself! It was ugly and i thought i was going to die! BUT I DID IT! I DID IT I DID IT! I texted my mom and dad to let them know :) tevis was very proud of me and gave me praise when i plopped on the bed after, haha!  Now tomorrow I may just walk more then run to just keep easing my body into this. its been over an hour and my legs don't feel like jello anymore. To give a little background on where I live...I live with Tevis but with his boss for the time being.. we are in the country. I wanted to get a gym membership but need to save money. So i decided to just run on our street...UGH i will go to the back thats just a few miles away now...with trails and a little safer! I dont mind the cars that occasionally come by me i am AFRAID of the dogs! So many dogs around run lose, it just scares me! I cant wait for July to be here, we will be moved in our new house (old to Tevis) and in a nice safe addition that i can run/walk on sidewalks and ride my bike :) I am determined to keep this up since i have my first 5K in september! So sit back and enjoy my journey with me!
