Today was the beginning of hopefully a long-term, new lifestyle for me.
I am sure you have all heard of the running program called Couch to 5K, right?
If not, you can check it out here.
I have never been really big into running. As a matter of fact I have always hated it.
My knees would ache, I had terrible shin-splints in high school, and I have always been "too busy".
My sister, you can check her out here, has always seemed to be a runner.
She is in fabulous condition and I must admit, I am a little bit jealous of her physique!
I know she doesn't look like she does without working hard for it either.
So I decided today was the day (okay actually I decided last night at work) that I start a running program. To make it easy on myself, I spent some time last night at work typing out each of the workouts for each week. I figured out what times I would have to walk and jog during the workout so that I don't have to think too hard about when I have to change from jogging to walking and vice versa.
Now if that was too tough to understand, cuz it was kinda tough for me to understand and I wrote it, here is what I mean...
I have to have things visual in order to do things properly!
The above is this week's training schedule.
I thought posting each week (maybe twice a week) would give me some accountability.
My sister will probably be keeping tabs on me this way too!
Love you Kirsty!
This also falls under my resolutions for 2011! I can honestly say I haven't failed, but I haven't been "on top" of it like I had wanted to be.
I have to say, I felt great after I was done with the workout today.
During the workout I struggled a little bit, but seriously, this was not that tough!
I am ready and rarin' to go on Thursday!
If you are interested, I will be posting my workout breakdowns each week.
I would love it if some of you would take on this challenge with me.
