Holy cowballs, ya'all. I have officially made it thru 4 weeks of training for my first 5k. And I have to say, this week was the hardest BY FAR.

I'm sure most of you have heard of this program: Couch 2 5K (C25K). I have known about it for a year or so now...and why I never jumped on the bandwagon, I'm unsure, because I absolutely love it.

For those of you thinking about hitting the pavement, download the free app and try it out. No committments, FREE. I think it gives you the first 1.5 week of training days.

If you don't enjoy it, then delete it. If you fall in love like I did, spend the $1.99 and buy the full version. The best $1.99 I've ever spent.
It's an 8 week program that is broken down by 3 days worth of workouts each week. Open the app and scroll to your workout day, plug in the headphones, strap your phone to your arm and off you go.

If you're a Pandora listener, OPEN PANDORA FIRST AND CHOOSE YOUR STATION. THEN open the app and get started or it won't talk over your Pandora.

Here's a glimpse of what the beginning workouts look like...

Here's an idea of how my week 4 has been. It's been the first week where I've had those, "what the hell are you doing, Anne," "go back home and make yourself some nachos" thoughts because the workouts felt alot tougher. But I'm too tired of having a fat ass to give up. So, I got thru it.

I haven't built up to the 5K distance, however I'm getting close to hitting the 3 mile mark on my workouts. And have I mentioned what a GODSEND my tennie's have been. I love these things almost as much as my husband. BUY GOOD RUNNING SHOES YA 'ALL.

I'm going to close for now as I've got to jump in the shower to start beautifying for my "(B)Reast in Peace" party this evening. Yes, I'm throwing a last hoorah for my breasts. Hey, my boobs and I have been thru alot together. They deserve a party.

We're starting at Hooters. I know, so appropriate. And then who knows where the night will take us. All that matters is that the boobs will get to enjoy one more night out on the town. And for that, they are thankful. Fotos to come.....

LOL! That nachos comment CRACKED ME UP! I have those random thoughts too. Yesterday I think I alternated between "What the hell, Amber, you PAID TO DO THIS?!" and "HOLY CRAP THIS IS SO COOL!" Overall, the high at the end of a run is so worth it! :)
