Living life in the carpool lane..

Yakult.. and the schedule to run..

Posted on: July 20, 2009

In an effort to try to make myself a little healthier.. and to balance out my digestive tract a little more.. I have decided to start taking Yakult.

It’s been this asian thing for years.. and had recently made it into the mainstream US market a few years ago.. it’s a Lactobacillus bacteria species that is supposed to promote a more balanced digestive system.. and possibly build a stronger immune system.

Considering the fact that I have gotten sick for the past few months in a row.. this should be a good thing.

I took my first drink of this stuff yesterday and I have to admit that it is pretty good.  I had been warned that it tastes sour and kind of icky.  It’s got the tartness.. but within the tartness is a sweet candy-like appeal.  I will not feel like it’s a “medicine” but I will enjoy it for the “yogurt” type drink that it is..

I’ve also had this dream of running/jogging in a 5K marathon.  My masters degree program is currently hindering the actual progress of this dream.. but I had found a great training schedule on

I’ts a training schedule that gets you from couch to 5K in 9 weeks.  The training sessions are 20-30 minutes a day, 3 days a week.  It looks fairly simple and it’s a gradual progression which makes me feel like I can actually accomplish this.. I just really need the time.. and the discipline.

One of these months I a definitely going to tackle it.  I may not get to do a 5K this year.. but I know one of these years.. I definitely will..
