Couch to 5K Week 3 Complete

Some of you may know that I have been starting to run a little every
week. It started as a friendly bet with my wife one afternoon when she
mentioned wanting granite countertops. I said "If you can beat me in a
5K then I'll buy you granite countertops."

Me and my big mouth.

So I started Couch to 5K program. I had been
doing some exercise recently in the form of Wii's My Fitness Coach
which is a great 'game'. So when I started running it was easier than
last summer.

Well now I've completed 3 weeks and tomorrow or Monday (depending on
if the baby decides to be born or not) I take a stab at week 4. Which
to me looks daunting. I have to jog 3 minutes then 5 minutes and
repeat. Up until now I've only had to jog 3 minutes max. I'm a little
nervous. It also probably doesn't help that I've been eating like crap
lately either.

Oh, what's that? Yes. I did start while my wife was pregnant. Is it
fair? No probably not, but I have my excuses. Maybe I'll share them
later. Until then we're still waiting on baby #3. That's more
important than anything else right now.
