While the Couch-to-5K might be a great workout plan for beginning runners, if taken in the literal sense it doesn't work out very well. If you know me, you aren't wondering what I mean. I hate running. I want to like to run, hell I want to be addicted to running, but I hate it.
Signing up for a race = get my rear in gear and train. not.this.time. I was much too busy traveling and learning to wakeboard and _________(insert ANY activity here) to be bothered with training. Folks I'm here to tell you do not try this literal C25K training plan, it doesn't work. What it does do is inflict pain. At least they had little cinnamon rolls at the end. and oranges. and a banana. and brownies.
But I finished and I finished 6th in my age group. and we will not talk about finishing time. because it doesn't matter because I finished and I checked it off the Dirty 30 list. Did I mention they had mini cinnamon rolls and brownies at the finish line? AND we made the Vernal newspaper!
