The Hot Mess Life

Running Update

I started week 4 of the Couch to 5K running program today. 

So far so good.  I also signed up for our zoo run in September.  It is a 4 mile track through the zoo, which will be fun.  There are few 5k's in the fall, which is awesome, I really don't like running when it's super nasty gross hot.

I have forgotten how good it feels to run in the mornings.  I don't get up too early, around 5:45 ( I am a morning person), usually eat half a banana and drink some water, and I'm running by 6:15.

Ok, so this is not me, but this is what I feel like in the mornings.  :)
 I've tried researching if you should eat before running in the morning, the consensus was whatever works for your body.

My running has improved since I have gotten PURPLE THUNDER!!!  Yes, I am very excited about getting new running shoes.

That's all for now!  I will keep you guys updated :)


  1. Man, I really wish I was a morning person like you. It would make life so much easier! But congrats on the running program! That sounds awesome!

  2. Awesome Job! I love the purple thunder, may be a purchase like that will keep me motivated....I'm motivated in spurts based on the daily fluctuation of my muffin tops :)


  3. I'm doing couch to 5k too!!! I just got REALLY excited to find someone else who is doing it...maybe too excited? I guess I'm easily amused. I'm on week 1...haven't run in about 2 years, trying to get back into it. New running shoes work wonders for motivation :)
