over the last month I’ve been preparing to start a routine of exercise. I’m going to attempt to, in 9 weeks, be able to run 5k with out stopping. I’m using a program called C25k “couch to 5k” http://www.c25k.com/ the goal is to be able to by the end of the 9 week program you should be able to run 5k in 30 mins. now this goal is going to be a tough one and very unrealistic for me with my asthma, but i am determined to at least try. so what if I don’t make it. i just need to lose weight and if i can get into a running routine i can achieve that. The C25k program seems like the best candidate for me since “Its secret is that it’s a gentle introduction to getting the body moving, starting off alternating between walking and running small distances, and slowly building up until after 8 weeks, you’re ready to run 5 kilometers or 30 minutes non stop.” so wish me luck and support because ill need it!
Nice. One of the gals I work with started this a week or so ago. She said she’s liking it so far. But says she’s awfully sore in the mornigns. Hehe
I need to get more active too. Eagle hooks us up with free memberships at the gym here. I really need to start taking advantage of it.
Best of luck! And thanks for posting the information! I just might start this week, too!
thanks! ill need all the luck in the universe to pull this off
