This summer has been a very relaxing one which I spent primarily sitting at the beach at our family cottage or on the porch reading.
Not very active.
Now that I am allowed back on my feet I want to stop being a couch potato!
Let’s get moving!
I am beginning a couch to 5 k running program to get active at my own speed!
I, like many others are intimidated by running. I have come up with every excuse in the book.
“I don’t like running.”
“I am so out of shape I can’t run.”
“ I hear it’s not good on your joints to run.”
” I don’t like to sweat. ”
I literally have said it all but that is all in the past.
Enough is enough and here I go!
There are several different couch to 5 k programs out there and each person needs to find the one that works for them.
The great part about this program is that it teaches you proper pacing from walking and gradually integrating running. Not only does this program teach you how to run outside but also on a treadmill (which is amazing since we live in Ottawa and could have a huge snowstorm in a few weeks )
My goal is to eventually be able to run a marathon and with this program I know that this is a totally do-able goal!
Who wants to run with me?
Lets get Sparkly!
