So, I was somehow roped into doing a 5K with my coworkers. I am NOT a runner. At all. Ever. The 5K is on April 19th. Naturally I put off training until yesterday (yay procrastination!). I decided I may as well start with the Couch to 5K app that I put on my phone ages ago. I made it halfway through the first workout. Well, I mean, I did 30 minutes of walking/running, but only the first 15 minutes (ok, 13 minutes) involved me following what my phone was telling me to do.
And the really sad/funny/pathetic realization of the whole experience is this: I have butt flaps.
Yes. Butt flaps.
I’m not an elephant, but I’m no pixie either (brownie points for recognizing where the pixie comment came from). That said, when I did my first attempt at running/jogging I thought I had something stuck to the back of my pants or maybe caught on my shoe. I ran a hand down my back side, didn’t feel anything. Looked at my shoes, all was well. Then I realized: oh, that’s the flab between my ass and legs hitting my butt. Nice. Butt flaps.
I will keep this up. I will finish that 5K on April 19th even if I have to crawl over the finish line!
