I almost can’t believe that I’ve kept up with exercising all summer and through now because I have had the toughest time trying to convince myself that I am capable of being in shape. Yet, here I am, working on week 2 of the couch to 5k plan. I realized last week that the route that I’ve been running on actually has a slight incline, which makes me even more excited about my progress. I’m really looking forward to observing my running abilities by the mid-point. I have yet to make any dietary changes though, and I sometimes wonder what effect my diet is having on how well I’ve been doing or could be doing.
