Tom: I spoke with a friend that challenged me to try to complete the couch to 5k plan from runnersworld.
Bruce: Sounds ambitious, did you accept?
Tom: No, there was far too much brisk walking involved and I do not currently have the disposable cash for hand weights or a female friend to chat without about which Ann Taylor summer dresses we should buy.
Bruce: So what is the plan instead?
Tom: I ran 8 minutes today, probably run 10 minutes on Wednesday. The achilles is quietening down but the excitement never stops.
