So my wife, the non-runner, has decided to give the Couch to 5k a shot. I was surprised, but pleased!
Our family has a tendency to be very supportive of each other – so we joined her! I admit that i did talk her into waiting for us, she had planned on using the treadmill.. I happened to like the idea of a family run in 70 degree weather!
Overall it went pretty well (despite the down-pour that hit us at the end), although she did have the standard wanting to run faster than was probably wise. She did very well, but did end up with very sore shins. Some research told her that toe-lifts is one of the best ways to help with that, and the soreness wasn’t enough to dissuade her from wanting to continue it tomorrow!
