Shhh, it's our secret

I am tired of laying around!
Yesterday Nancy- blogged about the 5K Your Way "Virtual" 5K and she got me excited so I joined the team! There are various options -- I'm going to do the 8-week Rookie Running program. I can walk until the cows come home but have never had the stamina to jog continuously for more than a few minutes. I think this 5K challenge is just the ticket. I don't know if TC will join me or not; he needs a knee replacement (that he would like to postpone for about 5 years) and jogging is hard on his knee. But I'm going to do it anyway -- it's just the challenge I need!
Today I did the first day's workout, walk 4 minutes, jog 1, repeat 5 times for a total workout of 20 minutes. Then I did 5 minutes of cooldown walking. TC advised me not to, but I feel FINE and am tired of doing NOTHING! So shh, keep it just between us, OK?
The Summer 5% challenge starts on Saturday so that, plus the 5K program, will help me get back into the swing of things. I'm definitely planning to get clearance from the doc tomorrow to restart all activities and am planning optimistically that he'll take the stitches out tomorrow, a week early.
I FEEL GREAT!
I've gained a few pounds because I've just been a total SLUG this week and I'm bored! Laying around doing nothing is highly overrated and definitely not good for me. So I'm ready for the challenges to begin!
PS -- still no contact from the insurance company, even though THEY were supposed to contact me and I've called the adjuster twice. More calls today, and going to talk to a couple of body shops to see if we can get old "White Lightning" fixed....
