Happy Monday! Today is the first day of March which means I am starting something new. Spring is in the air, well if you call 45 degrees and sunny spring (19 days til it's offically here) so it's time to get my butt ready for some shorts and swim suits ;-) The gym and I are going to become BFF's. I mean May will be here before I know it, which means summer time to me and I do not want to be in the same spot I was last year. (Uncomfortable wearing a bikini and trying to cover myself up.) This summer I'd like to be the proud owner of a new and improved body.
So today, I started the couch to 5K. I am by no means a runner or even close to being one. I can jog for about 3 minutes but then my breathing gets all messed up and I feel like I'm dying. I am the queen of cardio for sure though. I can walk on an incline as high as it will go for at least an hour and the ellipitcal is no problem. But I want to learn how to run so I figured this program would be great for me. Do/have any of you ladies completed this program and become runners? Any advice on this program would also be great.
I like it because it starts you out very slow. You do a 5 minute brisk warm up, then go into jogging for 60 seconds then walk for 90 seconds for 20-30 minutes. The times of walking and jogging increase as the weeks progress. It allows me to work on my breathing and not over due myself. I think I'll be able to stick to this and be proud of myself for completing it. I felt great after I finished the first 30 minutes today. I also did other cardio when I finished.
So I will be updating weekly/bi-weekly on how things are going and hopefully I'll be one step closer to running!
Hope you had a fabulous day, because, you all are fabulous ladies! I don't say it enough, but thanks for all of your wonderful comments and being a faithful blog friend :-) Hugs to you!!
