Fit Club: The Running Is Hard Edition

As I've mentioned before, I've been trying this Couch-to-5K running program. I've been trying it for a long time - so long that a certain SB author who began just before me is actually running a 5K this week! I'm not doing quiet so well...after about seven weeks, I am still on week two of the program. Again.

I'm finding this very discouraging. I'm not really accustomed to a lot of challenges that I can't overcome pretty easily. An from a purely time-management standpoint, I've got it easy...all the kids are in school for a full day and I work from home. So what's the problem? It seems to be my body. It just doesn't want to run for more than about a minute and a half.

I'm going to stick with it, for I'm sure that I can do this eventually. I'd love to hear how y'all are doing, if you are making any progress, and how you deal with frustration.

On the other side, my dear husband was recently home on R&R. I only gained a few pounds despite a steady diet of hearty home-cooked meals and even heartier restaurant fare. Now that he's gone again, it is time to straighten that diet out and resume making sensible choices. While I'm excited about the progress that I've made so far, I'm a little worried that I won't be able to sustain it when he comes home for good. So, please, share your stories!
