The first time that I actually like ran since probably middle school (for longer than 1 minute) was in January.
The reason why I never wanted to run before is beacuse I would get bad shin splints!
That's why I was scared to do it back in January when I started my journey to lose 20 lbs.
What I used to use, instead of the treadmill, was the elliptical or stairmaster since they weren't hard on my shins.
So when I tried it back in January, and actually didn't get shin splints, I was amazed.
I was also amazed that *gasp* I actually liked running!
Ever since January, I've been running a couple times a week (and doing circuit training on the other days) and I love it!
I do interval training on the treadmill.
It's where you basically sprint for a certain amount of time at a high speed, then bring the speed back down to a lower level and then walk for a certain amount of time.
I do sprints really fast for 30 seconds and then walk for 30 seconds for a total time of 20 minutes and I love it.
Yesterday I went out and even bought new running shoes!
Aren't they cute?
I think so.
So, anyways, now that I have found a love for running, I was thinking of starting the Couch-to-5K program once I hit my weight loss goal of 20 lbs!
So, I was wondering if any of y'all have tried this program and what your opinions are of it?
I'd love to know!
It'd be awesome to run a 5K!
Thanks, y'all! :)
Friday Fun - It's already Friday again. This was a fast week. We woke up to a tiny bit of snow on Sunday. My kids were so excited. We don't see a lot of snow here...
