My lungs have finally recovered enough for me to /really/ start the Couch to 5K program. So out I went at lunchtime today. Sadly, I couldn't even get through the first workout in the program. So I am starting out much, much more slowly and gently than even the gentle program.

For now, here's my regimen for this week at least. We'll see if I can do the Week 1 part of the program next week.

Walk briskly for 5 minutes from house to bottom of hill. Stop. Stretch.
Jog the other street in the 'development' (it's flat)
Start walking on the downslope to home, walk the rest of the way home.

Maybe next week I'll walk all the way over to the park so I can use the trail. Go up the trail one way, come back, walk back home. It's a 15 minute walk all by itself just to get to either of the trails/tracks I can use.

I could theoretically, walk over to the track at the high school in a quarter of an hour, run for half an hour, then walk back and still get it in in my lunch hour.
