Hm, would it be really annoying if I started all of my posts with "i"?
So my exercise plan has been modified this week. I did bring my running shoes with me, but it turns out that if you're not at the beach at Lake Tahoe, you're in the mountains - there's not much in between. So instead of running, I've been hiking. Nothing too strenuous, but then again, the first couple weeks of Couch-to-5K aren't exactly marathon runs.
As for hiking with Squeakles, my dad has been wearing him in the Baby Bjorn. Yes, my father, who is 30 years older than me is bearing the 16 lb weight on his chest while J and I hike along unencumbered. But you try convincing my dad not to carry Squeakles. (Or try convincing anyone in my family to give him up for a moment, for that matter.). And I can't say I have minded the opportunities this has given me to carry my camera around.
Couch-to-5K is going to have to wait until next week, along with a couple of updates here about other people's success so far.
