Why am I sitting on my couch this beautiful Sunday morning instead of sitting in church with my hubby? I'm not feeling my best this morning. You see, I am training for a 5k race using the Couch to 5k Running Program. This program is supposed to get you off your couch and running a 5k in 9 weeks; I'm in week six. The program starts with interval training (alternating running and walking.)
Thursday morning it had me running 8 minutes without stopping, but Saturday it jumps to 2 miles or 20 minutes! I was a little nervous as I have never even run a mile without stopping (even when I was in high school sports.) Surprisingly I ran for a solid 20 minutes without keeling over, however that turned out to be only 1.8 miles. I was a little disappointed that I didn't complete the full 2 miles, so I decided to try again this morning. BIG MISTAKE. The program states not to run outside of the training schedule, but of course I knew better. (My body, however, did not.) I got dizzy and light headed. I just felt week all over. I came home, and instead of getting ready for church I plopped down on the couch and started blogging.
So I made this apple seed numeral match game that is appropriate for kindergarten or some of your lower firsties. Feel free to use it if you can.
Five for Friday...Better Late than Never
