Couch to 5K in ...?

I have been trying to get going again with some kind of physical activity. I was great about going to the gym three times a week until I hurt my hip on the elliptical. Then I had to rest. Well, rest quickly turned into doing nothing which has to end. So, I toyed with the idea of Spin class...not really my thing. Zumba looked interesting, but definitely not ready for that. CoolCatTeacher, aka Vicki Davis, had tweeted about her success with the Couch to 5K app. It has been a while since I was running regularly. And it was never something I was particularly good at. To be honest, I am not good at many athletic pursuits.
Anyway, last week while updating my iPod with podcasts, including a cool Spanish one, I found the couch to 5K one. So, tonight I went to the gym and figured I would give it a shot. I felt like I would die and my shins were screaming, but I did finish the 30 minutes and then ride the bike for 15 more.
I feel like it is a start. I am hoping that by blogging about it I might feel more compelled to keep it up. Here's hoping!
