I'm definitely going to try the couch to 5k (c25k) running program. I've got a few friends in the area that want to do it and some that are just online. Either way we can encourage each other and finish together!
I have to admit that I am kind of nervous. It's been a loooong time since I have enjoyed running and I'm not so sure that I will ever like it again. I'm hoping that as I build endurance that I won't hate it so much. But I have to go for it all out now because I have told all of you that I am doing it and it would kill me to have to come on here someday and admit failure.
SO... this is the beginning of week one. I'm hoping to get my runs in on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The workout for these days will go like this... Brisk five-minute warm up walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes.
I can do that! At least I hope I can haha. I would look pathetic on the treadmill at the gym with all those skinny long distance runners if I couldn't handle a couple of minutes. Oh well. What do I care what they think about me anyways. They had to start at nothing with something at some point in their lives too.
Now I just need to convince myself to get out of bed tomorrow morning and go to the gym and actually do it. Ugh. That's the hard part right now. Thankfully I have a friend meeting me!
It's not too late to join in... we are just now starting. Click HERE for more info on c25k.
I need new running shoes!
