C2 5K

Friday, April 15, 2011

SO, I started the C2 5K program last week and today I'm on week 2 day 2. I'm actually enjoying it although it is a challenge for me. I never was a runner at all. I tried running with my sister a few times and didn't make it very far! I wondered why on earth anyone would WANT to run! LOL

I don't have a treadmill but have used one a few times nad loved it! SO, I kept seeing people talk about the C2 5K program so I looked into it for myself one night after watching the BL. I got annoyed with myself for not exercising and did day 1 right in my lviing room.

I've yet to make it outside to run. With dh's work schedule and taking care of 3 kids it's hard to find that time BUT I have been using my wii fit free run and it works! Today we're going to my dad's house so I really want to get out and run in his neighborhoood! I know I can do it! I'd love to run an actual 5k some day! emoticon emoticon

    Rhonda~That would be awesome! Thanks!

    IMNENA~YEP anyone can do it. It's only 30 min. start out with 5min walk then it's alternating 1min jog an 1.5min walk for 20min and then a 5min cool down walk. That's the 1st week then it progresses each week. '

    I' have been a walker having increased my walks to 7 miles 3 or 4 times a week and keep thinking I should run. Have tried it but don't like to run! LOL! I must check out the C25K! Can a 61 year old run it?
