Couch to 5K: Week 1

29 Mar

Good morning, lovelies!

Found this on an inspirational website with lots of exercises, daily tips and motivation


I know I said that I’ve recently started running, but I’m not sure I told you that I’m doing the Couch to 5K running plan. Most people have heard of it before, or at least some version of it, but generally it’s a plan that starts of easy and slowly progresses over the course of 9 weeks so at the end you’ll be able to run a 5K. The plan has you run a minimum of 3 days a week for about 20-30 minutes, but say it’s completely fine if you run more (with a set day off per week so you don’t strain anything).

This first week has been much more awesome than I would have thought it could be. I’ve said it before, but I am NOT a runner. I went out 4 times this week. The first two and the last one were super great… the third one I made a major rookie mistake. I ate a grilled cheese about an hour before going out. Oops!! I felt sluggish and unmotivated and (if I’m being honest) I felt like I was going to puke for the second half. I will NOT be making that mistake again.

so true


One of my favorite things about running is how it makes me much more aware of my body in general. Now I’m more motivated to tone and eat better. I’m not going to cut out any particular foods, but I’m going to let my body guide me.

    Also, Day 3 is always the hardest. It’s like your body hits a wall after realizing this hard-work business is not stopping any time soon. Good job! Keep up the great work 🙂
