Couch to 5k.

I've been doing the Couch to 5k program for about a week now. I'm really enjoying it! Thanks to all of you who suggested it.

Today my plan is

Brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes. I will most likely workout for longer than 20 minutes but it's nice knowing that all I HAVE to do is 20 minutes. This may sound weak to some but remember that I am not a runner. I am 30-40 pounds overweight with one mission in mind. To run a 5k by end of the year. That's my goal--a 5k believe it or not!

I am determined to train myself to run a marathon eventually and hope to join a team in training in my area soon!

Shout out

I just have to say congratulations to one of my favorite bloggers. Caitlin from Healthy Tipping Point. Caitlin inspires me and I love how positive she is. Recently, I emailed Caitlin about how much I wanted to be able to run. She responded right away despite her busy schedule and encouraged me. It's the little things, you know? I am just flattered that she didn't just blow me off. Thank you Caitlin and congrats on your book deal! She is living the dream. After reading her post today, I decided that if she can juggle 2 blogs, school, a full-time job and running then I can handle my full-time job and running. Why not right?

Who has inspired you lately?

you are really sweet. you can DEFINITELY achieve your goal of a 5K. life is for living, and you are doing just that!

remember that no one starts off as a marathoner. i began with c25k too essentially. it's a great way to build endurance.

thank you!

That's a great goal! You're going to have so much fun during your journey towards the goal. Running teaches us so much about ourselves.

I too am inspired by Caitlin today! She's truly an inspiration to us all.

Good for you!!! I ran my first half marathon last year and it was my first run EVER!! Training was great and the half marathon was brutal but the sense of accomplishment was the best feeling ever!!

Lots of luck to you!!!

Me too! I started 5k training first, running only one minute at a time (when I still had some weight to lose too). I completed several races including 5k, 10k, 10-miler and a half marathon. I also walked a half marathon just to get a different experience. But distance is not important (I definitely prefer shorter runs these days) -- what matters is that you are proud of yourself for achieving a goal :)

I am definitely inspired by Caitlin, Jenna from Eat Live Run and YOU!! :)

20 minutes is not lame. sometimes it's so demoralising to think that I "need" to go to the gym for a full hour session, and I can't always fit it in. For some people though, they like to get it all over with in one long session instead of going nearly every day for smaller or harder sessions. You have to do what works for you! I'm so interested in seeing how you go with running, I have a feeling you're going to be great!!
