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! 


  1. Totally downloading this app TODAY!!!

  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.

  4. I might have to look into that app! I have a really hard time running in the cold..last week on one of our unusually warm days, I went for my first run (aka jog) since summer!
