Couch to 5k: Redo

It has been almost two months since my last post.  Since that time my car was repaired and the weather turned much colder.  Then, the snow came–lots of it.  Since I work in building maintenance, I get to spend a portion of my day outside shoveling snow.  Keeping the snow off the sidewalks benefits me in a couple different ways.  It helps slow down my weight gain over the winter months, and it lets me rack up tons of steps on my Fit Bit.

It looks like I’ll have to circle the wagons and wait until spring to resume a training program.  April 1st seems like as good a day as any to start a couch to 5k for the second time.  This year I’ll begin training two months earlier and fifteen to twenty pounds lighter.

Between now, and then, I plan to try to keep my step counter whirling.
