Fitness: Couch to 5K


The 'fitness' category of this blog is severely lacking; it's because I'm not a very big fitness buff.

Gyms really intimidate me  and I don't really want to sign up for any classes etc.

In my head I try to earn 20 activity points a week, which I've done so far just by walking! However last week, well Saturday to be exact I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and went for a run!

Well, I say run, it was more like a zombie shuffle, but I did it.

I've attempted the Couch to 5K once before and it resulted in my dad having to get the car and pick me up half way round due to me feeling like I was going to pass out.

This time I actually managed to complete it. The sense of pride and accomplishment spurred me on to do the next day (which I did and managed to do faster than the first day) and I will be attempting the third day tomorrow (hopefully)!

I've always admired runners and envied them at the same time. I'm really hoping that this programme will help me build up my running so that I have some stamina as well as help with the whole weight loss programme.

I know that if I hadn't lost the weight I had then this would've been completely impossible and I'm really proud of myself for doing it.

So watch this space and hopefully you'll see some more Couch to 5K posts coming up! Or even more fitness posts!
