I tried something new tonight - not in the least quilty. My middle daughter, Jen, talked me into going with her to a "Couch potato to 5 K" running class. A little history would probably help this scenerio - I am not an athletic person. I am fine with that. But, this year, I have been trying to get healthy, lose weight, and gain more energy, so I thought this might be ok. I can do this. I even went out and bought new running shoes!
Cute, huh! I am 64 years old, a certified couch potato who hates exercise, and I thought this would be a good idea! The session started out easily - a five minute warm up walk, 60 seconds of running and 90 seconds of walking repeated for 20 minutes. Let's just say I found out just how out of shape I am. I made it through the 20 minute session, just barely, then proceeded to throw up everything I had eaten for dinner (and maybe for lunch - who know!) I am fine, I just got really hot and tired. I also will never have what I had for dinner again - ever. I hate throwing up! After a shower and a protein drink, I am feeling much better.
Will I do this again on Wednesday? I'm going to sleep on that decision. Things may look different in the morning.
I'm even to tired to do any quilting!
