Day 5--Couch to 5k

I had my 13 minute run/walk this morning. It was beautiful. The birds were chirping, and the creek was bubbling towards the lake. I've mentioned before that I live by a beautiful lake.

It is especially pretty at sunrise (when I was up!!!). I had to break my stride to take a pic for you this morning.

Be thankful I didn't take a pic of the armadillo remains on the side of the road. :)

I listened to Jesus Culture on my iPod while I ran. It was their album, "We Cry Out". Good beatz. Do you listen to music when you run or exercise? I don't do it everytime because I enjoy the quietness of the early morning. This morning, I discovered my watch was dead, so I had to take my phone which has a stopwatch on it to help me keep track. I thought I'd take advantage of the iPod feature. My spirit got some encouragement as well as my body.

So what do you listen to? Or do you?

  1. That lake is beautiful!!!

    As I was reading this I found myself day dreaming about getting a wedding job out your way so that I can stay with you for bit! You are a soul nourishing friend!

    Have I already told you how proud I am of you for taking on this challenge of running?!

    I, and I admit this is quite nerdy,
    run the steps in my house and do sit ups. I do not usually listen to music but if I was running outside I am sure I would!

    The armadillo would have been a great picture if it was alive and well!

    lots of love!


  2. I do listen to music when I helps me get to a good pace and stay also gets my mind off of what I'm doing and I can go further. :-)
    So proud of you and your early morning walks.

  3. i did it-i went running this morning.

    the plan i found looks a bit different than your plan?

    so this morning were you out for a total of 13 minutes or do you repeat the walk/run set?

  4. Good for you for getting out there!! I have no idea where you live, but you might check in your area to see if there is a beginning running group! We have one here where I live and it's amazing the support and friendship you get from others!
