Let me first start this post by saying how happy I am that I have made new friends and followers! I look forward to getting to know each of you!
I completed Week 1 of the Couch to 5k Plan this week! The first week includes an easy run, that you repeat 3 times with a rest day between each run. On my rest days, I did other cardio routines along with a workout with my new resistance ball! I am nervous to see how next weeks run will be!
The plan includes podcasts that you can download to your Ipod. The podcasts have music along with a voice that tells you when to run, when to slow down, and how much time is left in the segment. The music is hard to get used to, but once you do, it's a piece of cake!
Ok, you guys have to help me stay motivated and continue with my runs! Unfortunately, I give up kind of easy on things like this because I am always changing my mind and finding new ways to do things. This is a 9 week program, and with one week down, I only have 8 more to go. I realllllllly want to do this! I am currently in the process of looking for a 5K to register for that will help me stay concentrated on this plan!
I feel like this image fits me perfectly. I've always enjoyed working out, but I have never been a runner. I really want to start and I hope this plan will help me achieve my goal! Since I live near the beach, and I am going home for Spring Break, this will be me next week..
..except I don't think I will look so graceful!
