Today's Post Has Been Brought To You By The Letter "P" and the Number 1

Anyone who has ever upped their water intake (whether for just health reasons or because of increase in exercise) will understand when I say, "I have to pee all the time!!!"  For reals.  Last week after my third trip to the bathroom I looked at the clock and did a double take.  I just went pee THREE times in an hour and a half?  WHAT?!  So what did I do on my way back from said bathroom?  That's right, stop to drink some more water.  It's a sick cycle. 

I mean, you're welcome kidneys and a solid fist bump for being healthy, but how many times am I going to be jumping around in my desk chair today?  Give it a rest.  I have better things to do with my time at read other people's blogs...

The Treadmill: It Ain't For Wimps

My New Year's resolution?  Start training for a 5K.

I know, I's really "Start Training for a 5K, Part Deux."  Whatever.  Don't judge.  The first one I did kinda sucked and it was actually run by real PEOPLE.  As in there were actual "trainers" telling you what to do as you hoofed it around a track.  Was I able to run a 5K at the end of it?  No.  I ran 1 mile...almost. 

So the thing I am doing now is a training schedule (online: 5K Training) that in 9 weeks is supposed to bring you from the couch to being able to run 3 miles...I am not exactly couch status, but I can't run worth crap so here we go knees!  Let's all get in this together!  Today was day 1 of week 2 and I am still hanging in there.  Hollah!  I'm doing what I can people.  It's a start.
