Mummy and I have started a new program.  It’s call the couch to 5K program.  It helps people who don’t like to run or who haven’t been running get into running shape.  Ever since mummy had her knee surgery, she’s found it either painful or difficult to run…so she hasn’t been doing it at all.  She likes walking a lot more.  But she’s stalled in her weight loss, so she figures that running will help get it going again.  So last week we would run half a block then walk half a block and go on for 20 minutes doing that.  This week we’ll be running a full block and walking a full block for 20 minutes.  We will do it three times this week.  While mummy still doesn’t like doing it, she knows it’s great for me cause it gets me all sleepy.  And we bond a lot while we’re doing it.  I do get a bit confused at the whole starting stopping thing, but I’m sure it’ll get easier.  So I’ll keep you updated on both her weight loss and her workout.
