Back at it, Running Edition

Running is something I've always wanted to do on a regular basis but also one of the hardest things for me to stick to. If you have followed me for a while you know that I've been a "yo-yo" runner. I'm on, I'm off, I'm on, I'm off... I just haven't ever been able to really stick with it. About this time last year I really began working hard at training for a 5K. I became super involved in running and started to absolutely love it. As soon as I ran the 5K in the spring I decided to take a "week break" that turned into a year break. Not cool, I know. I have decided with the weather starting to warm up I really want to get back in it. 


I am completely having to re train because I lost any and all endurance I had built up. I plan to use the Couch to 5K app to get me started. It basically lays out 9 weeks of interval (walk/run) training. I started it this week and really like it because it tracks your progress for you. Has anyone else followed the couch to 5K training program? 


Happy Monday Friends!

  2. I did the couch to 5k training when I first started running. It was years ago so there was no app at that time :) It was a great program and really eased you into running. For me I enjoyed it so much I just kept running longer and longer. Now I'm training for my first marathon! Good luck with the training! Can't wait to hear all about it.

  3. I did the same thing! I loved the Couch to 5K app and then I took a break after I ran the 5K. I really need to get back into it.
