Couch Potato to 5K

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have struggled with my weight for a long time. Sometimes I can manage to lose a little bit for a few months, but it always find me again and usually brings friends.

The other day I was perusing my sisters pinterest, and saw that she had pinned something about Couch to 5k. I clicked the link and started reading a little bit. It took several days of me trying to ignore, but this morning, I finally started. It's not much, but starting small is easier for me.

This morning I did day one of the workout, which included walking for 5 minutes to warm up, and then switching off jogging and walking at a 60/90 second interval.

I'm excited for the plan, because it seems achievable, which makes me super excited!!!

I decided I needed to set a goal for myself, so I have decided to commit to do Pat's Run which is held here in Tempe. And of course - I'm posting it here for all to see, so that I hopefully can't back out.

I'm going to try to blog more about how running is going, and even results I see in my body (hopefully)!!

Thanks for reading!!

Good job <3 Getting going on a new routine is the hardest part. Once you start it gets easier! So way to go! Good job on setting a goal with Pat's Run. I find that to be the best motivator! Having goals like races are so much better than having pound loss goals.
