Morning everyone! I have exciting news on the workout front over here! I have finally decided to kick my “I cant run mentality”. Now, this is a huge deal for me. I really do struggle to run, which is something that I can admit, without shame, has really held back my work outs. There have been times when I have tried to run, 1 mile here and there, but ultimately I give up before really allowing my body to transition from a walker to a runner. After reading all of my favorite blogs about these wonderful women who overcame multiple things to become runners (injury, loathing, disgust for the idea of it like yours truly), I decided that enough was enough. So, with the help of my fabulous friend Amy over at Fruit Salad Life, my sista, and my roomie, I decided to do a 5K. Amy showed me the well known Couch to 5K training plan and last night, I started it! It is a 9 week plan, which I know may seem extremely long for a lot of you who run miles and miles a day, but I am excited about being able to ease into this and allow my body and my mind to really throw my “I am not a runner” mentality in the trash!
What is your favorite 5K you have ran? Any thoughts on which 5K I should run around September?
