As I write this, I’m still a little bit buzzed from the champagne I drank last night lol
And yes I know it’s January 3rd but it’s a long weekend so why not continue the celebrations.
Well, I’m paying for it now. I’ve spent the last couple of days surrounded by good people, good food, and good drinks… many many good drinks.
But sadly all good things must come to an end and tomorrow it’s back to reality so I decided to use today to schedule my week so that I’ll be less inclined to miss a workout.
One of the goals I would like to achieve within the first 6 months of this year is to run a 5k. I’ve never been an avid runner and I’m not sure if it’s down to the fact that I’m not really conditioned to run or that I just don’t like running. I’ve been looking up articles all morning, even looking at apps on how to go from the couch to running a 5k.
One article that really stuck out for me was an article from POPSUGAR’s fitness blog.
They give you a six week running plan that seems the least intimidating out of all the plans I’ve seen online. I plan to tweak it a bit and extend the number of minutes (i.e. follow the directions for that day for the first 30 minutes and walk for another 30 minutes afterwards, just because I need to do more cardio anyways).
They also have an 8 week plan to go from a walker to a runner but I prefer this 6 week plan instead.
Wish me luck!!
Also, if anyone reading has run a 5k or 10k I’d really appreciate any advice you have. Thanks!
