This cupcake is not messing around. Dark Chocolate Fudge cake batter + Creme de Menthe frosting. Tastes like excellence and diabetes.

Should have been Monday

For some reason I've decided I'd like to run a 5k. Or a marathon. Probably the 5k though since I've never really done any running in my life. The bad knees and the asthma are a strike against me getting it done but then again I'm never going to make it on the TARDIS if I can't run. And runners are always these slim, insanely fit people.

I've seen a bunch of "Couch to 5k" apps on my Ipod- it's basically a voice-over that coaches you while you listen to music, and you run then walk then run some more, over several weeks until you can run for half an hour straight. I gave in an bought one Sunday night and went running the first time on Monday and I didn't really expect to finish the run. Like I said I've never run before and I know what my problems will be if I do. Also since I don't run I don't have real running shoes- which was the problem I didn't think of before I went out.

Surprisingly I made it through half the run. Somewhere down at the bottom of my neighborhood in the middle of run four of eight my left ankle started aching, and then my lungs went crazy. It was like they all conspired to stop working at the same time and I had to sit on the curb for a few minutes before I could walk back home.

I planned to head out first thing this morning for a rematch but it's freaking raining. It would have to considering I actually went and bought running shoes (I'm certain that's what hurt my ankle Monday). Hopefully the weather will stop before I have to go to work...
